Same process as the front fender, but without the mirror getting in the way.

Oh, tail lights have to come out, think it was 2 torx nuts per tail light on my '97 SC2.
As for finding parts: www.carparts.com or search your local junkyard. If they have to be shipped they may claim they can't ship sheet metal...tell'em thats fine & please ship the plastic panel anyway

The mirror is only in the way when doing the door panel, not the fender.

The salvage yard part site is http://www.car-part.com . The cherry on top is to find parts from a car that's the same color; saves a bundle on painting. A fender from a '96-'99 sedan or wagon will match, but for the quarter panel, only a sedan panel will match (wagon is different).

Coulda sworn I got to the same page as www.car-part.com with an "s" at the end of it too... Something changed
Perfect example of needing to be able to edit more then a 15 minute window though, no idea how reliable carparts.com is so I don't wanna "endorse" 'em at all...
