Though I have not moved anywhere near the tools and parts that I need to the new garage yet, tonight was the first night that I got some real work done. I cannot tell you how much different a few feet around the entire car makes. I got a lot of stuff done in the tear-down department in much less time that I'm sure it would have taken me at home.
First, I wanted to get the bonnet off and put to the side. Part of this was in preparation for the body removal and part was to see if it, along with the rest of the body, would fit under the stairs that are in the back of the garage. In short, everything will fit just fine as a picture at the end will show.
|Bonnet off. Note the tool box which did double-duty as a coolant collector since I forgot my catch basin.|
|Bonnet, front valance and front bumper in their new resting place.|
|Drive shaft removed. I supposed I'll refurbish and paint this, too.|
|Gearbox sitting under the very bottom of the steps. I used the mounting bracket to keep it somewhat level.|
|That's looks familiar. This time, however, the motor is coming out.|
|My "corner" gets more populated.|
|Something is not straight. Either the whole body is bent (bad, but unlikely) or the door hinge is not aligned (or the upper A-post).|
|Perspective a bit off, but the tub will sneak right in under the steps.|
