Body tub removal

If it separates part way it sounds like there’s a/some bolt/s left in.

Is the interior carpet all out?

Ben's (an emotional quandry) 1975 SE5a

One modification was done to step down from the 18mm diameter spout out of the back of the pump to a 15mm copper tube to better fit the 13mm diameter hose.

Body tub removal

Have you got the rivets on the front face of the A post - and the two at the top of the A post where it cranks back at the screen surround?

Gearbox T5 problems, update to fit RX8 6 speed box

Remove a car radio

There’s a metal plate behind the dash on the 5a between the radio and the dash panel.
