This weekend I worked on starting the exterior teardown. I started with the rear finisher around the tail lights. This revealed more rust damage than what I expected. I knew the hatch sill would need to be replaced but now it seams like there is deeper damage. I will be able to determine the extent only after the sill is removed. I was also able to remove the hood cowl, wiper assembly and the front fenders. The first fender took a lot longer than anticipated. This was because the guide I'm using directed me to remove the top inner fender bolts, one near the rocker panel, and one in the door jamb. What it didn't tell me is that there are two near the rocker panel, seven along the top inner fender, two joining the front of the fender to the corner valance panel, and three behind the headlight. Only three broken bolt heads from both fenders. Not bad considering it appears all of them are originals! Once the fenders were removed and the areas were cleaned up, everything looked solid, which is amazing considering how much debris was accumulated there. I spent 5 hours working on the Z and no money spent. I'm still shooting for April 2nd to have everything off of the uni-body and I still feel good about that goal. Thanks for reading.
