Thanks for the information, Raymond and Kevin.
For my Brown Stove, the top pulls up at the front, hinges on pins near the back, and just lifts out - no real disassembly required, except to remove the pins of the spring clips near the front, so preparation would be easy.
I'll post an update if I get organized and get something done with my stovetop panel.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.
