When I did mine I just carefully pryed it back with a screw driver then drilled out the spot welds!

Don't try and pull a small section to 90 degrees! work your way up and down really slowly pulling it out only a few degrees at a time!
And when you dress it back, work your way up and down very slowly again!
Take enough time and care over it and it'll be fine! afro

I got the haynes restoration manual some where. It does have a few useful pointers in there on replacing panels.
If you wanna borrow it Steve, you're more than welcome mate! afro
