My suggestion is to diconnect the hoses and take out the bolts. I don't know about the gasket though(some cars gaskets tear off). I'm sure you can find out in a repair manual or something. Good luck. What color are you going for? Anything else painted?
I was going to take mine off, but I didn't feel like taking the time. It seems time cosuming. Thats just my 2 cents.
