Mostly straightforward with visible bolts to remove along the engine bay and one big self tapper at the bottom rear of each arch. Spot welds to the slam panel can be drilled out. After that I reckon you'll have to remove the doors to get at spot welds down the rear edges. It's something I've got in line myself; let me know how you get on lol.

you dont need to drill any spot welds for the wings, only the front panel.  The wings just unbolt.  Most bolts are obvious, the only difficult ones are on the back of the wing up in the wheel arch, kind of infront of the door.  They will be covered in underseal which needs picking off before you can get a socket onto them.

A small blow torch helps to remove the under seal for the bolts.
