There are 5 bolts. 6mm with 10mm hex. 1 is tucked up under the guard near the bottom of the "A" pillar. The other 4 are in front of the door. There is also a 8mm bolt and nut, 12mm hex, on the bottom. In the assembly they used a sealant that can be broken by using a thin bladed tool such as a putty knife. Your on a big learning curve. I still am. Don't be afraid to ask questions.

Impact driver is always a handy bit of kit but sometimes even it needs the helping hand of the screws being preheated with an oxy first (get em red hot them let them cool, breaks the rust. Then give em a whack with the impact driver)

Had a win... Did have all the bolts out. Sealant holding front guards on looked like sikaflex had the hit a sharp knife around joins using a mallet :? . Got door off with persuading it with blow torch and impact driver. On to the other side now

Well done. Sometimes it can be a pain getting stuff off. Bolts and nuts are often not obvious but then you had to solve the sealant problem. It's good to see you wanting to do a strip down as you find so much stuff that will only cause problems later. Good luck with it. It all looks good from your pics.
