Hope to get a hood from a salvage yard to replace mine with a lot of paint peeling off (was quoted $200 to repaint the thing, whereas a part is like <$100)

Does anyone have a step by step on how to remove and replace a hood? I looked on YouTube where I was expecting there to be a video (since there's so many helpful Insight repair vids) but nothing.

Is there something special about an G2? I've never looked at one. If it's anything like any other hood I've fooled with, you just unscrew two hinge nuts from each side and lift it off. Remove the windshield washer hoses first. You should have two people. Center the new one carefully, making adjustments on the hinge bolts if necessary. If it has pneumatic struts you'll also have to disconnect those.
