Well, took me about an hour to figure out how to take mine off and then finally put it back on when I installed my PIAA fogs and Z06 screens.

there are just a bunch of screws that attach the front fascia to the car, very easy to remove, just flimsy as hell and helps to have to people, one for either end :cheers:
