Interior restore question

Ok so my car is finally getting somewhere and I just wanted some opinions that have done this before.

The car is a fc3s with a ls1/t56 in it. The t-56 is being built right now and Im currently working on all the body work.

I have the whole interior stripped read for primer, the interior harness has all been gutted so I only have what I need, also just took the dash out.

questions

1. I have seen people cut the rear strut covers off, what is the cleanest and easiest way to do this?

2. When I removed the dash, the big as unit along with the heater core I believe is there mounted to the firewall. Can I remove the white AC unit and still have heat?

Just making sure im doing everything ok, I stripped everything and got it down to bare metal. I bought Duplicolor primer (not spray can I have a spray gun) and was going to do three coats primer then three coats automotive paint.

Also I have the headliner out and have no clue what to do with the roof, id like to keep it gutted and maybe throw some paint, car does have sunroof.

Thanks,
I appreciate the help.

I'm curious bout what you can remove behind the dash myself. If I was you, I'd look into lizard skin. Great sound deadner or they also have a thermal shield too.

rear strut tower things, you just drill out the spot welds and pull them off then re weld the holes.

the ac thing.. you can remove it but leave the box and tape up the two firewall holes and i think there is an oblong hole near the passenger side that should be taped too but i dont remember.

Thanks for the help, I got the strut tower covers out and decided to keep the heater core in. everything is stripped down to metal and I bought primer clear coat and had paint mixed. Decided to go with a lighter green. Im going to post pictures once its done. If anyone knows any how-to's or some kind of tutorial with some tips about prepping, painting mixing hardeners and reducers etc.
