Removal continues

Over the past few days I have been feeling increasingly more relaxed about this project. I think this comes down to the simplification of the task. By breaking the car down into its smallest sections possible it has allowed me to focus on the parts the need the most attention, which for this car is undoubtedly the floor as seen in previous posts.

I will certainly be needing the repair panel for the floor sections above including the crossmember. But I am hoping that the spring mounting repair panel (shown as 12 or 14) will be enough rather than having to replace the whole bulkhead which looks, on initial inspection, in good condition.

The focus has been on the stripping down of the cockpit area, including windscreen and wipers, heating parts and general clips and trims. The dashboard is obviously very daunting which is going to require some major thought about the best way to ensure that all the wires are going to find there way back to there original locations.

The bulkhead trim is a real pain to get to without completely removing the dashboard which in turn will be easier to assess with the steering column removed. I am hoping that all those hours playing Tetris on the Gameboy will come in useful!!
