Its been sat for a while, lots of rusty parts and a few oil leaks but body work seems good underneath

Airbox and Battery out ahead of prep for engine pull

20210712_184533.thumb.jpg.87f4553bdb3c340c5d6b200b74b5ba23.jpg

Manifold off

20210713_174448.thumb.jpg.f451c426d13f4ebdb429ea23bc44b7ea.jpg

Alternator, Aircon pump and pipework off - Aircon will not be going back on

20210713_220054.thumb.jpg.bf6291fa0f73dfa494d48e3553761cf9.jpg

Headlights and centre grill out. Aftermarket oil cooler removed as well, as there will be a 6 speed manual transmission going in no need for that to go back on. Radiator had a leak so that will be replaced.

Rear subframe removal - lots of plus gas and a Milwakee impact wrench made light work of the nightmare bolts - phew!

Underseal liberally coated but only a little surface rust to be addressed, fuel lines will need that rust sorting as well

Rear brake lines have been replaced at some point but not the tidiest job

Further stripping the rear subframe, think those bushes are a bit suspect
