Here are some pictures of when I pulled the body off of the chassis. I only had to take 2 bolts off and cut a couple pieces of rusty sheet metal to get the body off, I guess that's what happens when a car sits outside being ignored for 17 years....

The two bolts that were left holding the body on were under the gas tank
