92 Chevy S10 Fender swap

Hi guys,
A friend of mine got a lil S10 truck for his son. Both front fenders are rusted badly and he got a set a new ones. Now he is trying to swap them out but not exactly sure what all needs to be done in order to do so.
He got a repair manual but he is saying it doesn't tell.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Tomi

Look at the new fenders and locate the bolt holes. Then look at the truck and find the same bolt holes and start removing the bolts. There should be one bolt at the bottom under the doors, one at the top next to the doors, two on top of the radiator support, and several down the upper edge of the fender along the hood line that connects the fender to the inner fender. There will be two under the front of the fenders connectting them to the valence.

Let's not forget the bolts for the inner fender located in the wheel wells. 10mm and 8mm sockets should cover it.

Jump right in, it's not hard at all. I've had the complete front clip off my '96 piece by piece in less than 45 minutes.
