Anybody ever remove/reinstall their hood (1988 LeBaron Conv)?

I've never done it on that model car, but have removed many hoods in my day. I mark the position with soapstone and with a helper, remove the bolts and just lift it off. Is there something special about the setup on this car?

Don't forget to unplug any wiring, such as underhood light. And if it has washer fluid going to it, disconnect the tubing. Other than that, scribe where the bolts line up, so you can reinstall it the same way.

Thanks everybody. No problem, just planning to paint it. Seems like it would be easier off the car.

That's smart. That way you don't have to cover the windshiled and other parts to protect them from overspray.
