    Your hood bulge is just about the same as the grill three bolts and then clips. Here is a how to that includes both the bulge and grill.

    Well I take that back she must have moved since I was back that way last. Just looked again now she living someplace in the Valley now. Not really sure where. Just seen a post from her on FB about sandbags and all the water in her house.

    Well here on the coast I'm sure some not concerned with fishing would say the weather is horrible with windstorms power outages and flooding but to me it's just means no fishing this weekend lol

    If your painting with plastidip you can leave them on display use minimal taping/masking.
    If using something perminant then you should remove to paint.

    It's super easy Adam. I use a cordless Makita drill type impact driver, 10mm, 12mm sockets and a flat screw driver. Pull the grille first and you'll see the bumper bolts. Pull the lower fender liner and you'll access everything else

    Definately remove them then. You will want to get all angles evenly and under the overlapping areas.
    Sorry can't help with how to remove but I'm sure it's not too difficult.
