I start by drilling out the cowl rivet with a 1/4 bit. I drill each one about halfway. then go back and drill them each all the way. This keeps them from getting hot and melting the plastic.

I then remove the step plates using a 7/16 th's open end wrench and a screwdriver.

Image

If the fastner is rusted or the the screw gouged out , I will drill it out using a 1/4 in drill bit.

I ground the tip of a long screwdrive to a chisel edge. I like the extra lenght it makes it easier to use rather than a short chisel.

Image

Slip the tip under the body up against the rivet. Then smack it with the hammer. Repeat to remove the other rivet.

Use a small straight blade screwdriver to pop out the four bumper plugs.

Remove the four bolts using a 3/8" socket.

With the rockers removed, lift out the floor mat. Then remove the body rivets in the same way that the rivets on the sides were.

Remove the charging outlet by drilling out the rivets. Remove the wires from the battery and draw it out thru the body.

When you remove the cowl it will expose the hidden treasure. I haven't found a Rolex yet but I have found lunch money more than a few times.
