If that is the case with the one that you have, you may want to think about how you want to proceed, before you remove the old panel. Often, you can simply use the new panel as a large "patch panel", by leaving the front and rear edges, along with the top body lines. It will also be more difficult around the wheel opening.

aka...a skin.
