Re: now started on the front end..steering box removal advic

Just taken mine out. Jack her up as said, then it will come out at an angle no probs.
As for the steering wheel, I used a small blowtorch and clamp too then she popped off. ( not easily? Didn't think of hot water!)
Let us know how it goes

Project insurance

A little help please guys.
Do you have your resto projects insured?
If so, where do you suggest to get it etc?
I was thinking earlier of the value and just want her safe incase of fire from working on it in garage, theft or any other sad misshap.
Any info greatly appreciated
Cheers
