I have removed most of the interior apart from the dash at this stage, I have decided to leave this in until a little later on, this appears to be a straight forward process as long as you are aware of a couple of important steps as in this great video by 6th Gear Garage Dash removal

Got my black dog watching over the restoration.

I have removed the front bullbar, grill, and lights, looks like there was a slight hit on the drivers side, I see a couple of make shift repairs to the headlight mount and slight dent on the apron panel. (Small ripple in a big ship)

   The floor pan appears to be in good condition considering the age of the ute. A lot of the colour seen here is old fish oil that has dried. There is a bit of surface rust under the pedal box but they will clean up easy enough.
   Removed the roof lining, it had a small tear about 5 inches long behind the passenger side, now it's got a few more, so I'm going to have to try and find a NOS or someone that can use the old one as a template and make another for me.
   

 

Ok, It's time to get started on the Hilux.

The first step is to remove the back off the Hilux and pressure wash the chassis and cab, inner guards and doors, so I can get a better idea on what I'm in for.
