HELP: Removing front bumper

Hey I need some help in removing my front bumper. I am putting on the gemballa front bumper and so I need to know which screws to take out and if I need to disconnect anything. Can anyone tell me how this is done?

Screws and plastic pins under the bumper.

Screw behind the amber reflectors.

Remove plastic pins from wheel well (requires removal of front wheels)

Once wheel well cover is removed, remove screws from inside bumper that holds it to fender behind the amber reflector.

Remove black plastic cover from over trunk latch and there are 2 other screws to remove that hold top of bumper to the car... thats about it.
