Well a good way to spend fathers day was working with dad on stripping down the car to get ready for the rebuild. Step 1 was empty out all the stuff we had stored in there and found a new home for it all. Then we were going to remove anything that is not essential to the engine running.
So it was time to remove all of the following :
- Interior Light
- Headlining inc rear view mirror & sun visors
- CB Arial wire
- Light Bar & Wiring
- Cubby Box
- CB Radio
- Missile switches from the dash
- Rear Seats
- Seat belt mounts for the front
- Rear head padding
- All rear lights & tow bar wiring
The plan at the moment is some time this week remove the roof, rear window section and rear tub. We will then cover the cab section with a tarp till the chassis arrives and we move the car to the location of the rebuild.
While working round the car we gave all the tub mounts a good spray with penetrating fluid so hopefully they will all come off a bit easier when we try to do it.
