Default Before and after heater box removal

I got a couple hours this weekend to work on the monte. I am cleaning up the engine bay and removing everything not neccesary to my end goal. Today it was the heater and A/C box. I started with unhooking any wiring, removing the fan, the drip ledge under the windshield, the inner workings of the box, then finally the box. Took around an hour to do. I still need to go through the wiring and sort it out and get it loomed and out of the way. This week I will get a template and make a cover at work. If it turns out like I think I will be taking orders and make them for whomever wants one. Here are a couple pics after the removal. Nevermind the trash inside, I havent cleaned out the belongings left from the previous owner.
