3rd gen front bumper removal - how to?

Anyone seen anything with pics on this? Would like to see what Im up against before I take it off. There are several threads about 4th gen but my search didnt yield anything specific to our years. Im sure someone has some info considering the number of front end mods on here.

-Remove the day-time running lights with a screwdriver.
-Grab a rachet, extension, and necessary socket size and remove the two bolts on each side (passenger side, driver side) of the core support you see.

If you are looking to remove the bumper from the core support you may find it to be a bit of trouble as the screws that hold the two together can be quite stubborn after all these years. I'd recommend one of those impact screwdriver things for that.
