First I cleaned it:
Then I pulled it:
Nice one huh?
Then I reemed it! And just so everyone knows I was thinking about Jimmy V the entire time I was reeming.....
Then I plugged it with extra copious amounts of rubber cement.
Hit it with a little heat from the heat gun since still have the front end torn apart so no ride yet. Waited about 45 minutes while I fixed some of the wiring that was done previously and my OCD would not allow it to stay like that, and aired her up. Sprayed some soap and no bubbles. Gonna check it again later on today. And yes I did cut the pig tails off.........
Thanks for everyone input.
