    How to remove wooden rear bulkhead pieces?

    How do you remove the two wooden lower bulkhead pieces, part #s 106193 and 106192?

    I see the two screws at the tops of each piece near the center of the car, but it's not clear what else is holding those parts in.

    Thanks

    Neither of my cars had anything holding them in place.

    Are you sure? I don't mean the covers over the fuse/relay and ecu areas. I mean the vertical panels with the cubby hole cutouts that go in front of the battery and storage compartment areas.

    I think mine are glued or epoxied in place. I tried to remove mine when doing my engine conversion and wiring for the MS unit and gave up.

    I just took mine out. The screws only hold the small center section to the two side pieces. Each of those is MASSIVELY glued/epoxied to the fiberglass. I just worked it off by prying with a screwdriver and a pry bar. Go slow and the epoxy yields. Pull it from the center of the car and you won't have to remove the quarter panel trim piece that it tucks behind. There are no hidden screws anywhere, it just seems like it.

    Sorry for the terrible, horrible, 5 year thread resurrection but... is there a good way to actually get the epoxy off the fiberglass to facilitate bonding a new bulkhead board? The bottom edge of my driver's side board is all cracked apart and I was going to put a new one in place, to better hold the subwoofer - but not if it's going to be a nightmare of that green shit epoxy things were built with. I'm sure I can smash up the existing board to get it out, but prepping the surface to bond a new one in place worries me a bit.

    Just a standard DA sander with aggressive paper is what I used.
