Radiator Support Disassembly

Today’s Trans Am restoration work included dismantling the radiator support. The battery box was almost non-existent as well as small portions of the radiator support. No one is reproducing this piece yet so some patch panels will have to be cut in another week or so. The battery box is available and will be replaced. The brake booster and steering box was also cleaned up this week. It was pretty nasty and took a while to clean. Some mineral spirits and then some soapy water did the trick. It appears that it only leaked around the inlet. The input shaft seal may still be in good shape. I’ll paint it as is and be on the lookout for any leaks since the steering box is easy to pull back off after installation if needed. Brake booster will needed a little more cleaning to prep for paint.
