Thanks man, are these steps from the manual? Body shops quote me for removing bumper and headlight also, are they necessary?

Not exactly - I expanded on the manual. Manual shows pic of fender with location of bolts & says remove

Not necessary to remove headlight or bumper - I've had both fenders off my car using steps I listed above.

Sent you a PM...

To make it easier and less of a hassle, yes. The sideskirts cover 2 bolts on the lower side of the fenders.
