No pictures, no mess.

Took two 5 gallon buckets and a jack and jack-stand.

I used the petcock to drain took quite awhile but it was worth it not having to mess with old hose. Ran tap water through it, emptied it, then let it cool and ran a gallon of distilled water through it, emptied that whilst still hot, then after it cooled again alternated between 1g of distilled water and 1 gal of antifreeze while filling it back up so that I ended up with an even mixture in the overfill compartment.
