Front Grill Removal: How?

I'm wanting to get my Rubi's front grill Linex'd. The Linex shop quoted $100 if I remove the front grill and $350 if I don't. I looked at the grill area and I'm a little puzzled as to how it comes off the vehicle. The top of the grill area under the hood almost appears to be spot welded to the radiator support. What's the steps to removing the front grill for spraying without damage?

I was going to paint my grill a different color but I was hoping I didn't have to mess with the AC lines. But thanks for the 411.

I had my fan shroud, radiator, condensor, and the support bar out the other day...and never messed with A/C lines...

didn't really look, but I would "think" you could get it off without evacuating the lines...
