    That's how you want to find them, with the sub-floor intact with all the stowage boxes. Add repro side armor and you have most of it.

    Yes I was able to work out a deal, there is a 3rd one too so trying to work out the logistics of removal its a difficult site to access. I'm going back tomorrow for the first one.
