Well after some coaxing by AikenDrum105 I decided to pull by heater box for a bit of a looksies on Saturday night. I had to replace the heater hose anyway since I'd cut it at the firewall. The box came out ridiculously easily after just undoing two bolts on one side it dropped down and slid out. It wasn't too uncomfortable either since I haven't put the front seats back in yet.
It had been used for rodent accommodation sometime back in the '08 judging by the shredded receipts. The was no sign of a rodent and it didn't stink like I would have expected so maybe it was a temporary home! I promptly disassembled everything and stripped the paint and corrosion, primed it and gave it three coats of satin black epoxy enamel. Short trip to Clark Rubber to see what I could use. Unfortunately didnt have a good size grommet for the hose into the side of the box. The original grommet is quite tight around the hose and I couldn't find one with the right size inner diameter.
