when i took off my fender, i just started under the hood the exposed screws running down the side of the body wall, then just followed the perimeter of the fender removing all the rest, probably about 13-15 bolts holdin it on? maybe size 10 but im guessin now


by any chance you got any driver side fenders???

just scrape the mold off with a flat head or somethin, it will break off nicely.

with the bumper, I only know about the two large bolts that need to be removed, which are located looking up front under the bumper, their are two holes, and then that whole first piece comes out. If you do this, take out the turn signal lenses and feed the wires out so nothing gets stuck.

Just experiment with it, you cant do anythin wrong, just unscrew away!!
