Question Stupid Question: How hard is it to swap hoods?

Hey guys, I might have found someone to swap hoods with me (I want the scoop for my 2005) and havent thought about this until now, but how hard is to to swap hoods? How long should it take? I know these are dumb questions but just want to make sure I can swap this thing quick and easy before the "trader" changes his mind!

As hard as you make it. It can't be that bad. Bump for someone who knows for sure.

Yeah, there is only (2) bolts on each side holding the hood brackets to the hood, real simple, but remember to carry a metric socket set/ratchet
