Default I need heatercore pics

here's something you don't read everyday.

anyone have good pics showing the heatercore, heater box, installation or removal, or any images that may possibly help me do the following:

i want to carefully remove the glovebox and then cut the heaterbox open with a dremel tool to extract the heatercore like a surgeon.

you read that right. no way am i removing the dash. my car will never be a show car. i can accept that. i will be happier and have a lot more fun doing it like this, and i have no doubt i can seal up the cut marks afterwards. i like to butcher stuff sometimes, and this seems like a pretty fun carefree way to do a horrible, unrewarding, labor intensive repair. i have no doubt that i will smile, giggle, and sip on beer the whole time. i consider it payback for fixing things where corners cannot be cut. things like wheel bearings, timing belts and waterpumps, control arms, fuel pump, clutch, transmission input bearing cartridge, etc..

i'll post pics and updates along the way, just in case anyone else ever feels like doing it the wrong way on their car.

Heater core is on the other side. That would be like crawling up someones butt to pull a tooth. Here is somthing posted the other day.

^where?! where is it!?!

are you implying i may have better luck by dremeling out the radio/dash area before attempting to remove the heater core? -i think i can cut behind the glove and behind the panel under the steering wheel to still do it like this and still make it look good.

see, this is why i need pictures.

behind the radio? like, maybe just "slightly leftish" of the radio? seriously, behind the instrument cluster all i ever noticed is the pedal assembly, ducting, and wiring. are you implying the hearercore is on TOP of THAT!?!? nothing could possibly fit there.... i hope... LOL then again, the way the other repairs on the car go i suppose it would be.
