Didn’t make it back to the walls, ended up pulling the lower rear cap in order to repair the back deck. Everything looks scary to take apart at first, then you start drilling rivets and things just come off without any fuss. Hardest part of taking off the whole thing was drilling out the screws that hold the cooling fan door. Don’t understand why you go through the trouble of putting in SS framing but yet just use regular steel screws on external hinges that will be exposed to rain/salt.
Got the fiberglass intake pulled off this morning and now working on pulling out the surge tank cover, it’s pretty rusty so I may have to find a replacement.
