There is a single little bracket that clamps down the chrome strip at
the windshield end.  If you remove that, then the hood comes off
easily.  Warning!  If you lay the hood flat on the other side when you
raise it (unlike letting it stand vertically) you will ultimately
damage the paint on both upper panels.  For this reason I carry a
small towel in the toolbox that I lay on the top surface before
opening the hood.  This should also be in place if you take the hood
off, which is done most easily with the hood fully collapsed.
