I'm getting ready to respray my car but I'm curious to know what they best way to remove my doors and trunklid are with out cutting any wires or anything like that.

I know someone is going to say unbolt them but are there any tricks or things I should keep in mind while removing them or is there a process that will make it easier etc.

All help is greatly appreciated

Hood is pretty easy. When you take the door cards off of the door you will see what you will have to disconnect to be able to push the wires out of the door. A few of the hinges on the car are tricky because there is no way to reach the bolts without removing a ton of stuff. I just left those on the car. I removed the b piller plasttic stuff that way I could remove the weather stripping. For the trunk you need to remove the lock and then everything will pull out and just unbolt. It helps to drill a small hole through hinges into the door/trunk/hood. That way you can line everything up on the car easily.
