280C rear bumper removal

How do you remove the rear bumper on a 1973 280C? I can see some nuts on the back side of the bumper but is there an easier way??

There are 4 nuts usually.. At least the original fasteners..
2 on the rear, and 1 on each side.. The rear ones are 17 or 19mm on the outside..
The side ones are inside the trunk, 17mm I think it was..
