What kind of help are you looking for? If you're just removing all the tin, a large box and ziploc bags for screws, a roll of tape and a Sharpie for labeling, and finally a digital camera to take a bunch of pictures of how all your newly labeled tin pieces go... that's pretty much it.

don't forget an impact driver tool, driven by a nice big hammer-
& the thick slotted bit, if it's 1800cc, they used slotted screws and
they will be quite tight. Regular screwdriver(s) & wrist(s) won't get you far. :l

This problem is best solved by throwing out the slotted screws as you remove them and using hex head screws. I still have one or two phillips head screws in select places just because they are easier to start using a long screw driver than a hex head would be with a long extension.
