Great approach, take your time. Read the separate clam removal/replacement threads, this is 1/3 of the job. A couple tips, it takes two people to remove/replace the actual clam, the technique is critical, lifting from under the radiator opening was key for me. Also... leave the shims and bolts in place as much as possible, this is a PITA to put back on later.
I've got a buddy that will help me when it's time to actually lift it off the car and bring it into the house. I'll be going slow with the work for sure.
