Soap and a Volkswagen Part 2 – Disassembly

Just incase you missed it, Soap and a Volkswagen Part 1 – Bringing Her Home

So, now that we have her home, we needed to clean her out and completely disassemble the interior.

Thankfully, these snazzy seat covers and layers of trash preserved the original interior very nicely, but we will get to that later.IMG_1453 IMG_1455 IMG_1520Just getting all of the trash out made a huge difference. Potential is gleaming from this beauty! IMG_1522IMG_1528IMG_1541IMG_1557IMG_1561IMG_1575IMG_1577IMG_1623Super cool, we found the original jack!IMG_1583IMG_1605Pealing back the layers of time.IMG_1634 IMG_1645 IMG_1650

Now to pull out all of the interior.IMG_1666While taking apart seats, I received my first restoration injury!IMG_1670
