bumper, take it easy on the bolts for the fenders, they rust fast, and will snap a head, or the clip will cut into the bumper/fender. some cars are different. PB blaster would help it. The rest are fairly straight forward (two pop-in pieces below SSE on bumper)

Rear is a pain sometimes. inside trunk are 3 10mm on each side. need a deepwell socket. 4 screws for the black trim on the rear top. possibly 5 10mm under that, or pop-ins or none, 4 pop-in'* under rear, and then 3 screws in wheel wells. oh, and 1 pop-in behind license (possibly) again, this can be interesting if the parts are rusty.

Rocker panels, remove all the 7mm or 8mm screws on the underside and then it slides one way or another to come off. I'll have to look at the pics of the clips I have when I get home.

Hope that helps. if you need to get the fender one off, remove the 10 mm or 7 mm bolts from under, all fender screws and you'll possibly need to remove the inner fender to get the last 10mm or 11 mm piece holding the top part of the molding on (behind black strip)

Ok, that is my help. I have pictures of all parts if you want to see the undersides. I can get those up later tonight.
