Just bought my first Bradley GT. It's got a 73 VW under it and needs a fuel pump to run. Body is in great shape. Interior needs some love. Regular nuts. However, I want to pull the body and rewire the entire thing. Anyone have any pointers on: A) Best way to pull the body? B) Best way to save the windshield?
I've thought about pulling the glass first and storing it separate from everything else until I get the car back together but didnt want to do the work if I could leave it installed.
No reason to pull the windshield. I did a total GT restoration and left the windshield intact. And I mean TOTAL restoration.
The body is bolted to the pan on the perimeter. Take those bolts out. Unhook the steering column, remove whatever wiring and lift it off with some buddies. If you search there are several examples of how people store their separated bodies. I built a simple table from 4x4 and 2x4 that was on casters. It was wide and tall enough so the chassis would slide under it. That way it only look up one spot in my garage.
Rewiring the car with the body off is the BEST way to do it.
baron: Hi All! I am building a Baron kit that was never completed. I am currently working on the VW chassis. I have rebuilt the engine and getting it set up to the car. My tranaxle has been sitting for 40 years. What is the best way to clean its insides?

leonardabell: Dakota, if you are looking for a GTII windshield, you may be SOL. They were made just for those cars and scarce as hens teeth.

cocacoladodge: Does anyone know if Skip20s family has plans to keep his projects or undecided at this point? Who to contact? Heck he was one of the first to talk to me on here, I feel like a good friend is gone before his time.
