There's a lot of crusty bits under there, and more steering parts than a 'normal' bug

Repairs previously done to the rear but not yet painted.





Above the gearbox is all nice and clean

I generally end up doing most of the work on my cars on my own and wasn't sure how easy it would be to get the body off.

Turns out it's very easy. The floor was sat on the front wheels so I could remove the front suspension. I placed an axle stand each side, a length of 4x2 under the body and then just lifted each side onto the stands.

On to the rear. Not as quick but still fairly simple. Jacked up one side at a time and put an axle stand under each side.

Then alternated sides and jacked up enough to raise the axle stands another notch.

Now, the floorpan will be worked on in the back garden, and that's only accessible down an alleyway so I need to get as much off the pan as possible to make it manageable. Gearbox and driveshafts out.
