I'm trying to remove as much as I can to paint the engine bay. Are there any hints to removing the heater? It doesn't seem to want to move up and/or out. Also, what about the pedal box/clutch/brake area? Any tricks? Thanks.

There is a large posi screw at the top. Several smaller ones around the horizontal lip at the bottom in the engine bay. You also have the hoses to remove. Disconnect the heater cable at the control, then grab and reef on it at the top pulling forwarad. It will break loose and come out at a tilt.

Pedal box; undo the posi screws and bolts that hold the cover and remove. Inside you will find a bolt holding both pedals. Remmove it and let the pedals drop. For the assembly, you have to undo the piping (there is an access panel in the cowl that can be used from the footwell), then unbolt. Remember to get the two bolts that attach to the firewall.
