You're right, we certainly could use a How-To, if only for encouragement and moral support. Seems daunting the first (or fifth) time. While there is a fair amount of work and time involved, every fastener along the way is different. Label them as you go to make sure they go back in the right places.

There are several videos on youtube. Don't forget to mouse proof while you are there:

on the bolts on the sides that are under the trim piece I used a sharpie and marked them with dots. 1 dot for the first bolt 2 dots for the second bolt etc. It makes it easy to put them back in the proper place. It's fairly easy to do but it is time consuming.
Thanks to all who answer and help. It is greatly appreciated!
