Anyone done it?

My old bus has some crust underneath in an area I can't get to, apart from cutting a hole in the body of the car the only solutioon I can see it to lift the body off.

I got close to it when replacing the rear brake lines. I undid all the body to chassis bolts and hitched the engine crane to some eye bolts fixed to the rear body and lifted it enough to get at the brake lines. It seemed pretty light but there was no interior stuff at all.
I think someone else in another post has done it.

Yes I’ve done it. Easy 3 hour job with a 2 post lift.

I’m happy to advise if you have any queries

Thanks both!

I'm assuming there are a few electrical connectors to remove.

The steering shaft and gearbox linkages?

Brake line flexis and abs sensors, steering wheel linkage (it’s kinda quick release), prop shaft U bracket, 10 x mounting bolts, any 3rd party cable ties etc that shouldn’t be there, suspension pipes at valve block end, wiring plugs, gear selector linkage and hand brake linkage unless you are dropping the entire assembly with the box (I did), fuel line engine end, I think I did wheel arch liners too. Probably a few other small connectors but quite easy once you get under. The part I forgot was the prop shaft bracket which bore the weight of the whole chassis when I lifted it!!!
