Default Sunpad removal

Hi All,
I just had all of my covers redone except for the two captains chairs in my 210LX. I did the chairs myself and they came out unbelievable! Pics coming in a separate post later tonight. The only other thing I didn't have redone was the sunpad.

It was in very good shape and frankly the canvas shop I went to said it would be as much to do the sunpad as the rest of the boat. Anyways, I am wondering if anyone ever removed their sunpad and how hard it was. I am going to take a look after it stops raining but in the meantime I thought I would ask.

The old hinges will be bent, and taken the shape of the "old" sunpad. After redo, to make it easier, get new hinges that are similar. 3 times for me. Open and close, as you tighten and adjust new sunpad.

I didn't have any issues taking mine off. Just take it slow and easy. Also better to have 2 people. I do remember it was a little cramped quarters getting underneath and behind.

Also, lowes, home depot, farm and fleet, etc! Have stainless steel nuts and bolts. Will need those, but dont buy them until the old is off. Some will have broken and they used different length ones. You will see, not to hard to do. But getting the gap to normal upon reinstall will take patience. Youll be an expert when its done!

One other thing worth noting. They are heavier than you think.
