Beak removal

My apologies if it has been discussed...the search function did not return any results for me.

I need to remove the beak for painting....does anyone have any tips? It appears to be far more complicated than it needed to be

I've done it a couple times, once to repaint and once for crash repair (hit a turkey!) Short answer is that the entire beak, headlight & dash assembly must be removed as one with the fairing bracket. Then carefully disassembled to avoid breaking any mounting tabs. The instructions in the service manual are very helpful.

Thanks...i did it this morning, i am blown away at how ridiculously complicated that process was

For months i have been pondering the idea of a repaint and by looking at it i imagined that it couldn't possibly be more than a few screws involved
