Remove and Install Stock Fiberglass Flareside Bedside

Hello everyone...I've been searching the forums like mad but haven't come across the answer yet.

The drivers side bedside on my 2000 flareside Ranger got backed into and I'm trying to figure out if it's possible to remove only the bedside. I would replace it with a stock fiberglass bedside I found online.

I've seen a few threads that mention drilling out spot welds but is that the same for the fiberglass bedsides? Has anyone ever done this before who could shed some light on the process?

Any help/ideas would be much appreciated...Thanks

There are no spot welds on a fiberglass bed,lol.
It actually unbolts. You see that plastic rail ontop of the bed? There are torx bolts under it. Then there are ones behind the bumper, and i not sure about the front, just look around.

the stepside bed sides bolt on, no need to drill spot welds. the bed rail caps hide the screws that hold the top of it on, the step pad hides a couple screws, theres a screw under the rear bumper behind the rear wheel well and theres a couple screws by where the tail light is fastened on near the tailgate latch. they are all torx heads if i remember correctly. also since its the drivers side the three or four screws that hold the filler neck on need to come out too.
