1975 Ranchero Fender Kicked in?

Hey how do i remove a 1975 Ford Ranchero 500 Series fender?

I dislike how it looks badly, and i also want to pull the fender trim and put bigger chrome trim on the edges to cover up the body work i am about to do for the mildly rusted edges.

I would just remove the fender wheel well chrome all together. I have found that's what keeps the rust flowing on the fenders. Water gets trapped up in there, I would do the body work and paint it and keep em off. Just my opinion though.

ok but that still does not solve removing the kicked in fender.
