Original Pentax 645 Film Camera - Removing bottom plate

Hey all, I've got an original pentax 645 that I am trying to repair. A battery leaked and the wiring and circuit boards are all corroded in the camera grip. Tried cleaning it, but some of the wires broke off.... Anyone know how to completely remove the bottom plate so that I can fix the wiring? Also any pics of where the wires are supposed to connect would be super helpful.
