I need to finish the seat. There are a few things to be done, but I will do it in string when I register it to drive.

Disassembling continues on the Froggy.



Removed the front wire harness and the fresh air system.







The dash pad had a cover, which I left back then, but this time it will be done right.



I just cleaned it up a bit before I'm putting it away.



The gauges are all out, and the wire harness from front is pulled inside.





The doors are all disassembled. Here the locks. I clean stuff up before packing it away. One before the other after cleaning.



The calipers removed.



Next the suspension.





Got more items already cleaned up a bit before put them in storage.



Most of interior parts are removed now.



The steering rack is ready to go in storage.



Almost all components removed. This car was disassembled a lot faster then those before, LOL.





To be continued.

Cheers
Engelbert

Why did you remove the wiring harness? Are you going to rewire or just replace after paint, etc is done?

That seems like a lot of work because the car was dusty........

It need some repair. Maybe I just make a new one, not sure yet. Include some DRL, oil cooler fan, etc.

I started to delete the battery boxes, since the battery was relocated in to the smugglers box. This will also free up some space for additional oil cooler or so.

















The nose panel need also some work. Back than when I butchered the car for Autocross, I just used some body filler to make it look OK.



I have a new lip piece coming, so this gets replaced, the rest under need is still solid, just a bit banged up.



I will fix this. Since I have the section for the air flow for the oil cooler, it made no sense to replace the complete nose panel. I would have to cut out that section again.



So I removed the brace plate behind the lock and will clean it up and bang straight and weld back in.



I got most of the top section straighten out. Just waiting for the lip piece to com in so I can cut out the old and replace it.



To be continued
