    Facelift Bonnet removal

    How easy is it to remove the bonnet on a facelift A4?

    The bonnet arm bolts like easy enough along with the supporting leg. Its the washer pipes I am curious about.

    I am needing to get the bonnet painted and am thinking it may just be easier to get it painted fixed to the car.

    The wiring is easy,so are the washer pipes,though I broke the lug off one of the washer jets when removing the pipe.It may be better to cut the pipe off.The bonnet strut is just a clip.

    They have the other front panels already so was thinking they could match the bonnet against them?

    I am no painter, but i do know that a proper job involves blending the panels which requires everything to be in place.. That is if you want a proper finish that does not show from panel to panel.

    Hopefully works out ok, I thought removing the panel would give a better coverage and make it look more like it had not ever been sprayed. Fingers crossed.
