Did anyone DIY the Vorsteiner CF hood??

Before the hood arrives next week I would like to get some advices on installation, yes I am doing it by myself and possibly another friend or my brother

From what I heard it is basically a easy swap without modification. I was inspecting the OEM hood the other night and found some areas that I am not 100% sure how to:

1. Driver's side lift: how to remove them to fit onto the cf hood? just yank it out?

2. Located a bit below the hood lift there is this as picture shows. Do I unscrew all 3 including the silver one and transfer them to the cf hood? Do I have to disconnect the battery before I unscrew the silver nut?

3. The rest: I assume they just need to be unscrew and transfer to the cf hood?

I haven't really seen the construction underneath the Vorsteiner hood hopefully it is easy swap like I have heard.
