        Studelover's profile pic shows a '61 Hawk, so I assume it's that car?
        Simple answer; no, you can't remove the outer fender without the inner fender attached, unless you drill out all the spot welds. [xx(]

                    If you use the slide show prompt you can see about 20 photos on how the front clip looks( where the bolts are) to how the wiring and other things go together.
