Sorry buddy....I been slackin off.....
The bonds between the panels and the body are stronger than the fender panels themselves, so it's next to impossible to remove a fender, quarter panel, deck, or hood surround without damaging them. Assuming the panels haven't been replaced already, and the repair was done badly. In some cases like that, the panels might fall off fairly easily without much damage at all. The most common procedure to remove the front fenders is to cut thru them with a sawzall, right above/below the bonding strip, and in front/behind the bonding strip by the cowl/hinge area. Then a chisel or grinder is used to remove what's left of the fender from there....
Does that help?
