Not sure of the bolt count, but it's sure to be the number in your 
bolt bucket + 1 or 2.  ;-) Don't miss the bolts that go down to the 
top of the shock towers on the rear subframe.

I'd remove the doors, if only to get them out of the way and make the 
body lighter. In fact, I'd pull everything you possibly can before 
separating the body from the pan, doors hood, fenders, glass. You'll 
have to pull the gas tank and separate the steering column, so you 
might as well pull the whole column, too.
