    There's 3 or 4 (depending on the size of the vee) bolts ontop of the mold board. They are just simple carriage bolts. 9/16 I believe. Unbolt them and you're good to go. I would recommend leaving it on though as that's what holds the top of the poly on. It basically keeps from curling more and shifting upward should something happen while plowing or in the off season

    If you have a 8'2" there are 4 hole under that top plate, I alwasy marked that 4th hole. (next to the center bolt) I had to drill that top plate, then I put that C channel back on and layed the flap ontop of that then the flat stock ontop of the flap. Then I ran the bolts thru hole in the steel and bolted everything down.
