Question Passanger Fender Removal

My passenger side fender was rusted through and my 97 failed inspection. I had a new replacement ready already, I just don't know how to install/remove it. Does anyone know where to find schematics of the body panels or have instructions for removal? I'd rather follow some steps than just go for it.

I think the realOEM exploded view will be helpful.

But, basically you pull the bumper cover off (not difficult), then remove all the bolts and the fender comes off.

The trick is properly lining up the new one, so the gaps are uniform.

(if you have side skirts, those need to come off as well).
