This evening: Wiring harness disconnected (there's something oddly gruesome looking about it disconnected - brain stem-ish); motor & tranny mount bolts loosened; shifter & rods removed; heater hoses & vacuum tubes cut/removed.

Wheels back on, car lowered. Ready for towing to Ivan's garage for actual ICE-ectomy.
