This also required a couple of 'Aleve' that evening.

Front end completly torn down.
All the door trim and dashboard removed.
And the final indignity. No doors or wheel.
Next shots will be of the naked cars. At last dirty pictures. Ironically they actually will be very clean...
But I've been biding my time; wait for the moment to exact my revenge from Sears for the 'Tuffins' pants my mom used to buy us.
At last the three day weekend was upon us; %50 off plus %15 with coupon. It was time to strike!
Revenge is sweet my friends, revenge is sweet (and metric).

Having dropped the engine; there remained one major system to remove.
All the wires. Rick came by and we got medieval on the wiring harness. And the gas lines, clutch cable, gas and speed-o-meter cables.
All the internal (and external) trim.
I've been getting a lot of support, both from friends and my wife. My friends getting greasy and my wife freeing up my time.
Well maybe the brakes still need a little work…
But major props to Alberto at club NARP for spending a day here at Ground Zero Labs.
Something seems to be missing….
Look ma, no engine (and transmission (and exhaust)).
Nice 10 – 2 style.
I would be remiss if I didn't mention the she has already told me the car has to stay yellow. "For Bumble-Bee Tranformer Dad!"
Not. Going. To. Happen.
You know you might need that part of the car for later….. The sad part is when I removing the side panel, the jack point was interfering. So I put a screwdriver in the bend it out of the way… by hand.
The left side runner has a surprise for me as well…
I didn't know people took 914's off road. But how, that much mud get's into a side panel; I'll never know.
"The less on the car, the better our access." So I'm removing everything.
Here's the front of the car, sans headlights and bumper. The fog-lamps and headlight frames were removed next.
The rear getting the same treatment.
It's not that I haven't been working on the car; it's just that I have been so busy, I haven't been able to update much. But after two people have mentioned that updating the blog might be a good idea I'm taking the hint. And hopefully be able to use a new tool to write the post (allowing me to post more often).
