How much of a pain in the a$s is it to remove the boot cowl before painting? Is there much more than removing screws to get it off or does it require trigonometry or some other form of pain?

Thanks!

It’s not as bad as I thought. It’s all the little screws around the firewall, the ones on the side of the fuselage, the main bolts on the bottom and then it pushes forward slightly before coming completely loose. Two people is definitely better because it’s large and awkward.

That last post I made about the windshield though, I don’t know if it can come out as one, but I took mine out before removing the cowling.
