2007 Mustang GT front bumper cover removal, help

I am trying to replace the front bumper cover after a couple altercations with some critters. Any suggestions as to how you get at the inner nuts that hold the cover to the fender, the ones closest to the wheel? And there appears to be either a rivet or button head screw ahead of the forward fender stud. How do you remove that? I'm trying to get this changed out before I move next weekend. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

The plastic fastners are two pieces. Just carefully pry the inner up and then pull it out and then the outer will come right out. Hope this helps !

I have the plastic push pins removed. What I'm trying to get at are the nuts in the inner fender well that hold the cover to the fender, specifically the nuts closest to the wheel.

Okay, problem solved. Removed the push pins on the inner fender splash shields. Now, how do I remove the turn signal lamps?

Just twist the plastic and then pull the bulbs straight out and leave them hanging.

Sorry, what I meant was the turn signal lenses. It appears there are two rivets holding the supports to the bumper cover. Looks like I will have to drill out the rivets and re-attach the supports to the new cover.

Sorry, my bag. I've only removed and replaced my own, not replaced with another so misread your OP. Best of luck, hope it's not too big a PITA! I know those inner nuts inside the wheelwells alone are pretty tough so I hope the rest goes well for you.

Thanks. I got the cover off by removing the inner fender splash shields. It looks like the turn signal lens supports are attached with rivets and will have to be drilled out to switch them out to the new cover. Problem is, as soon as I try to drill them they just spin. Have to come up with a way to remove them.
