This view shows one of the cylinder priming cocks. 
Here the Solex carburettor can be seen, it's not very big for such a large engine. the bulbous protrusion is the inlet from the missing air filter unit.  
Onto the careful removal of the upper hull. 
As the hull lifts we can see more of the chassis and drive shaft. 
The delicate removal continues, care being taken once again not to damage anything in the process. 
A better view of the universal joint and drive shaft. 
Little by little it's lifted off. 
A view from the top balcony. 
The hull is almost completely lifted off. The centre of gravity for the hull had to be determined by trial and error. 
The hull finally freed up and being hoisted to the rear of the chassis. 
And finally after 60 plus years the chassis and automotive components are revealed in all their decay. 
The hull laid to rest on the ground, ready for sandblasting.
