George needs your WW sockets and a couple of extensions. These bolts
were installed from the top, before the body was dropped onto the
chassis. They can be accessed from the side, I have done, but it is
fiddley work. Fortunately, they are well protected in this box so they
aren't likely to be frozen or rusty.
