Even if you don't need the extra hands I think I'll stop by to see this operation. I might even bring the beer and pizza.

I drive by regularly to see if the truck sold. Probably trying to convince myself to do what you're doing right now...

What time do you plan to pull the body? I'll swing by with a case of a good craft IPA. You won't be able to drink them because I'm also selling tickets to the event. The beer is for the audience. It's not every day you see someone remove the body of a vehicle in that part of town.

Definitely impressed.

Stopped by this AM to see the set up. We won't be reading about this in the Daily News, it's all seems well built. But it will still be interesting to watch.

No problem. Enjoy the beer. And keep me posted about the next lifting party. I'm looking forward to the successful attempt.

Just take the thing apart in big chunks like I described above. In the time building that contraption (which will be helpful to lift the chunks) you could have had the pieces off and onto the new chassis.

Yes, this seems to be the best path to do it, womp womp, Just ordering the last few bits from paddock (looking at $200 in shipping so I can't mess around with this)

Found the culprit keeping the body on.... Two 10mm bolts near the seat box...

Once I cleared away the rubber compound and tore the seats out it became clear... Full body lift time, second attempt :D
