REAR BODY TUB
One person each side can lift and slide the assembly away from the windscreen frame. Now you can get a good grip before lifting it off. WITH THE roof out of the way it’s a much simpler job to strip out the remaining interior trim and fittings to give best access to the bulkhead and rear body tub. Most of this work is really geared to releasing anything that’s attached to the rear tub, or it is likely to prevent or obstruct its easy removal, so that means seats, seat belts and any remaining trim. The Series III here, unbolted and lifted easily, despite having been bolted up for 40 years. The Ninety, demanded surgical boltwork with the angle grinder and hacksaw, and some of the corroded aluminium simply broke away to powder. Lift off the seat bases and then unbolt the back rests and remove the lot. Doing this first ensures the seats don’t get damaged.
