Default Columbia Par Car front hood removal

Forgot how to remove my Par Car front hood to access rear of dashboard.
I've been in there before but am now stumped. Are there bolts behind the front "Par Car" decale to lift the front and tug it forward?
Thanking you,

Never mind --

There are two pieces to the hood, the top part and a smaller lower part extending down toward bumper. On the lower part there are two 1/4 inch scews at the bottom and near the top two 19mm nuts that keep it in place where the top of the shock absorbers are on the front of the shock absorber bolt.

After removing these the front is somewhat free once the bottom part clears the shock absorber bolts. Then tug firmly forward on the top hood. I started at one side and worked my war across the cart. There are protrusions on the hood where it fits under the bottom of the 2 inch circular trim at top dash and bottome of windshield.

Now come on. I did all this about 12 years ago and it totally left this old brain! I must say, except for early problems with the charger this Par Car has served us well until now.

You got me beat tho, I've had mine for a few years maybe and just yesterday I could NOT remember how to get the hood off either. Under the PARCAR sticker/emblem on mine there's a 7/16 nut & bolt and then just use a small prybar to unseat the raised clips molded in the hood under/around the windshield surround.
I think mine is an 04 or 05 tho...
