Default How Easy Is It To Replace Hood On 98 Acura CL?

I Just bought a 98 acura cl, the body is in excellent shape except for the hood that has a dent in it. Im thinking of getting a new hood from but dont really want to pay to have it install so I wanted to know if its difficult to replace the hood or if its worth paying to have it installed.

Pretty easy to replace, only a few bolts. When installing the new one you have to keep the bolts a little loose until you have the hood aligned to close properly, then snug em' down. It will take 2 people.

i believe its fairly easy to do scale of 1 to 10. about a 3 because you will need two people (yourself and another) to hold the hood as you align it. i think only four bolts to do this.
