Little black box and rear heater removal

After removing the seats and ripping up the rubber flooring, I'm left with a somewhat decent sub floor and a few things to either remove or repurpose. The rear heater is something I'd like to remove. This particular model has a two hoses going to it and a series of low voltage wires. What I'm concerned with are the tubes. I'm assuming thats some sort of radiator fluid in those. What is the process of removing this like? Are there any videos or walk throughs anyone could provide?

Another one is the photo, that is, what I'm also assuming to be the data storage for the camera system already on the bus. What I don't have are keys to open the thing. What's a good way to open that thing up without destroying what's inside? And would it be possible to continue using that system post conversion?

See my post on your other thread. It isn't a high security box. Just tamper resistant.

For the coolant lines, just cut them and drain. Then you can either reinstall the hoses and heater later, or loop them together under the bus. Don't forget to add more coolant. We are adding our heater back in.

That black box contains a VCR lol. There are 4 screws under the bus. Easy removal. Good luck.

I think that black box was a small gun safe just in case the children became unruly.
