3. Someone mentioned making a platform to make it easier to work under the dash. I put a board on top of 2 five-gallon buckets, and a pad on top of that, and it made it a lot easier than when half of me is hanging out of the car into space.
This is an awesome tip for under dash work of significant time

Someone left a comment on the heater core video, he said a trick so he didn't had to bent the metal tubes

- at the rubber heater hoses inside the engine bay, remove the quick disconnect and the mounting plate
- blow into a hole (use a small hose): this will empty a little the heater core so it won't leak when removed
- from inside the car, cut the tie wrap that binds both tubes at the top: once disconnected from the heater core, the metal tubes will move away easily - no longer needed to bend them to get them out of the way
