Windscreen out...



Windscreen frame in good nick...





Doors off...



Rear trim panels, back seat and sound deadening out...



No signs inside of welding to the n/s



If you look closely you can see signs of welding a plate on the heater channel end and you can also see a smale hole in the back of the floor pan to the left of the battery strap.



That's it for today Smile

Rear wings off, bumper mounts and body mounts are good...

n/s





o/s





Ends of heater channels are going to need some work...





o/s jacking point got ripped off when I lowered the rear too much.



n/s jacking point is not too bad but will be removed, I hate the bloody things.



I then spent the next couple of hours removing all 32 body mounting bolts and hey presto the bodys off Smile

















Thats it for now.

I had two of the floorpan to heater channel bolts snap off but luckly this was at the o/s/r where I will be replacing the heater channel bottom plate.

All but one ( o/s/f upper ) wing bolts came out ok.
