Tunnel cover

If I want to get at the prop shaft, does it just lift off or are there fasteners.

It basically just lifts off but you won't get at the propshaft. You get at that from underneath.

Thanks Scott thought there might be a top tunnel plate.

What do you want to do to the prop? Remind us what age / model of car - tunnel configuration has changed over the years.

There’s sometimes a screw in each lower rear corner.

Access prop from below.
To remove tunnel top you need to slacken handbrake to enable handbrake lever to be vertical. Remove knob off gear lever. Tunnel top will lift off but may need to move/remove seats depending on type of seats fitted. I have leather seats and can simply jiggle top between them without removal of seats.

I thought 2020 was the year that was going to give me all I wanted. It turned out to be the year to make me appreciate what I've got.

Ok guys the plan is over winter to remove driveshafts. remove and replace Diff Get propshaft balanced. Paint calipers, new discs and pads. Replace handebrake cable(rusty) and clean and paint any rusty bits at the rear. May remove fuel tank and clean and spray with etching laquer. Will need to remove boot floor. Remove front calipers and paint, fit new discs and pads.

BaileyMorris for prop work - perhaps new UJs at the same time.

POR 15 good for chassis painting - it is pretty permanent so getting on your skin is akin to getting a tattoo!!
