I've done it with my cherry picker on the 47. Thin rope and 4 smaller size S or J hooks placed inside on the lip at some convenient spots near the corners. Pick a spot where there is no stress so they won't slide or bend anything.

Biggest issue with that cherry picker method is the hood has to raise high to clear the radiator so tends to swing when you roll the hoist in or out of position. I throw a pad over the back edge so it won't hit the paint or anything else. Might not be as much an issue with the hoist and raising straight up drive the car out method.
