pic.4 is getting the plastic out of the way of the steering colume
pic.5 is a/c machine all hooked up to evacuate the a/c
pic.6 is colume dropped to sneeky screws under caps center dash
pic.7 is rusty getting all the wiring harrness undone
pic.8 is the little helpers, helping by staying out of the shop
pic.9 is the heater box undone, there are a few sneeky ones in the very back, to get the old heater core out cut the lines with dremmel disk

Used to be one of my favourite jobs in the trade, actually made ya use yer head! Wish I could have brought the customer out half way through though to make them appreciate the work I did. Maybe if they saw the complete dash sitting on the front seats they wouldn't have bitched when a heater core or evaporator took all day to do. :D
