4 bolts and a person to hold the other side. its cake, all you have to worry about is adjusting the 4 stoppers so that the new Hood rests the right way. total instal time for never doing it= 5 mins max?

Wow I feel dumb now. It took me forever to do it because the Hood was always pulled too far to one side. I finally gave up and just installed it, then a few weeks later, I noticed it is pretty much lined up perfectly. Oh well. rolleyes
