Pulling it all apart

I have seen time lapse videos of vehicles being dismantled compacted into a minute. My version would have included lots of standing and staring, head scratching, hours spend on one rusty bolt before pulling out the angle grinder in frustration.

Being my first full restoration, I have tried to do a good job of bagging and labelling all of the parts. I think that I have done a decent job of that, but I think I can make some improvements which would save me time, by putting parts together in groups that make sense for re-assembly.

Overall it has taken me about a week and a half to disassemble everything back to the rolling chassis and motor. It is a dirty, backbreaking job but the end result is very satisfying. There were not nasty surprises, the chassis is in pretty good condition and all of the body panels are pretty decent. I have to figure out what to do with the bulk head and if it is worth the cost to fix it or better off trying to source another one.
