It's a little tricky getting at the ones by the hinge, but I just used a 1/4" drive with a long extension and it worked good.

there is a brace inside the fender, center of wheel opening that you will need to break free once you get the inner fender plastic out.
the rest is simple as mentioned.

i'd spray the bottom 2 beside the rocker panel first tho.
