Split nose bowl photos/ threads?

While I'm waiting for a new starter, I'm considering splitting my nose bowl. It would make maintenance much easier in the future. Needing to remove the whole prop assembly just to remove the nose bowl, just so I can take the starter off was a PITA. With a ground adjustable prop, it's even more time consuming and requires more effort when putting it back on again.

Anyway, I was hoping to find a thread where someone documented splitting their nose bowl, but couldn't find anything with a quick search. If anyone has photos, advice, or any info on this, that would be awesome! Thanks in advance. Here's a picture of my nose bowl.
