I had a few hours to kill in the morning before heading off to work so I was simply looking at what needed to be done. I went to work on removing the head lamps and housings. It was held together with 4 bolts on each one. The nuts on the inside of the engine bay were part of the frame and were stationary.
I still needed to get the windshield wiper motor out. Thought a good start was to remove the wiper arms.
Next, I had to remove the external vent cover underneath the wipers. Unfortunately things don't always go as planned and I ended up stripping all but one of the 5 or 6 screws that hold it down. Time to use my handy 14.4 volt Craftsman drill. This was my first time drilling out stripped screws so I'm such a newbie at it. All went well though and there was nothing to it.
After removing the vent cover, I found a field mice nest.
After finding that nest, I got a little sidetracked and took out my shop-vac and decided to clean up what I could. I took the shop vac to the engine bay and cleaned up a lot of debris. Everything looks much cleaner and I'm pretty happy with how it's coming along. I can pretty much pull the engine now if I wanted(except I need a hoist), but I'm still trying to get other stuff out of there before that happens.
*On another note - I was also able to remove the driver's side horn. Those screws are seriously no joke. I think they were put in place with a phillips head air wrench. Ended up using my drill again and drilled those bolts out. I think I may just get replacement horns. Now I need to remove the passenger side horn next.
