Rear window removed and preparing car for paint videos

We ended up getting the rear windscreen out thanks to a friend across the road and stripped the interior completely of all wiring and panels. We also got the heater box and Air Conditioning removed as well as sanding down the interior.

Driving car back to Dungog with no dash and cable tied Speedo...

With no dash and a cable tied speedometer to the impact bar, I headed off late on Friday night and drove the 2 hours to Dungog to get ready to work on the car for the weekend. I had planned to spend the weekend preparing the car and painting the entire interior but soon realised that it would take a bit longer than just the one weekend.

Removing sound deading with dry ice - colour decided - Artic White

I took an afternoon off work and organised to pick up the dry ice from Fregerts Ice for $6 per KG.
I started laying it over different sections of the floor panels. It was very easy to use and I just left the dry-ice on the sound deadening for 5 minutes and then hit around the edges of it and lifted up the stuff in full sheets.
Transmission tunnel and some of the back areas were a little harder but using the hammer and chisel, all up it took me about 1 ½ hours to get it all off.

Dry Ice and removing sound deading to change colour of inside of car as well

I decided that to change the colour of the outside I would have to change the inside as well, so I researched about removing all of the sound deadening. I knew there were a few different methods but I thought that the best way was using dry-ice.
I phoned around and got some quotes and found Fregerts Ice in Asquith to be the cheapest.
