Separating the body from the frame

Lifting the body up

I used a 3″ x 4″ piece of oak under each rocker panel to spread the weight and then used the lift to raise the body off of the frame

Roll out the frame

I rolled out the frame from under the body

Body off Frame 1

Body on a dolly

I used more of the oak pieces to support the body and built a dolly with 4 Harbor Freight furniture movers.  I built support points on the dolly where the body attached to the frame and lowered the body onto the dolly and rolled it out of the way


The 4 link suspension and rear end

I rolled the frame out the the outside work area so that I could remove the entire rear end and 4 link suspension.  I put an ad on Craigslist but left the system tack welds in case the buyer wanted to see it fully installed.
