Take the hood off , it bolts to the firewall then there is 1 bolt at the bottom of each fender, another at the top near the cowl on each side. Then the 2 on the core support , each side of the radiator. There is also 1 on each side at the bottom of the inner fender where it comes to a point near the bottom of the firewall. You may have to remove the bumper to get the frontend off. If the frontend has never been off the bolts could be rusted and not come out very easy , be careful of the bolts at the bottom of the fenders , thats where the fenders rust badly. And be very careful with the old brittle wiring.
