After we got the car to my place, we started taking out the flooring, the interior felt lining, and we lifted the body off the chassis. This proved to be quite a challenge because the front of the body is really heavy compared to the rear. Eventually, I built a stand (chariot) with wheels and we hoisted the car onto it using a come-along and a bunch of ropes attached to the ceiling trusses. If you want to take the body off take my advice, just get 4 strong guys together, bribe them with a case of beer, and have them lift it off. The way I did it was way too much effort.
