definitely remove the headlights you will need to when mounting the fiberglass anyways and it will help getting the fenders off now

Alright, round two a little later as its 91 degrees with 41% humidity out there...probably the reason i didnt want to pull like crazy and decided to go indoors instead.

good luck, it's not overly difficult. in pulling the oem fenders, with force, you will break the oem plastic fastening points (orange in color if i recall) they simply are pushed into the metal portion of the fender underneath the oem plastic fenders. this fastening point hardware should be replaced by any aftermarket flares hardware provided. there should be no disruption of the factory paint, but CAN be a noticeable paint difference of where the oem flares actually lied versus the aftermarket items flares. hope this helps

thanks! but i think you're referring to the flares only, no? I'll be removing the whole fenders to install some fiberglass ones..i've gotten some good info from other members but would still like pictures or a how to...just for kicks.
