G-car teardown

In preparation for sale, the Geo has been relocated to the backyard so I can work on it and keep the Z in the driveway. The interior has been removed to get at the stereo, seatbelt sensors, and alarm system for rewiring.

Once I’m satisfied with the interior electrical work, the seats and trim will get a good cleaning and go back in for the last time, with any missing screws and fasteners being replaced along the way. Engine and exhaust work will follow.
