I've done this on my turbo Esprit. There are not many fixings to undo but the body has to go back a little to clear the front suspension top mounts. I had also previously removed the engine and gearbox. I used an engine hoist, trolley jack and several paving slabs. All this was done in my back garden on my own. Once I got it high enough, I was able to wheel the chassis out from underneath.

you will need to disconnect cables and electrics through the bulkhead and also the handbrake cables at the rear callipers. The gear change selector rods also need disconnecting.

It wasn't too bad really.


It's getting there......
