Ok, we're ready to start taking the chair apart now and its very important that you wear the right hat. This will help you get the chair apart pretty easily and make you feel good. This is put together with screws so we're just going to take these screws out. I'm going to go side to side. Sometimes these old screws are going to be messed up, the slot will be kind-a deformed, so one thing you can do to combat something like this is take your screwdriver and take your mallet and give that screwdriver a good pop and it will set down in the slow a little bit better. There we go. Sometimes you might have to just pull it a little bit. And then we'll take the top ones out.
