That really depends upon the amount of damage you have, but from what it sounds like you may need the whole panel to get everything relocated back to its proper place.
You should remove it from exactly where the factory fastened it on.
A spotweld cutter (drill bit) and a chisel should serve to remove it.
You only drill through the old quarter panel, leaving the car's attaching points intact. Then you just grind down the leftover bits and your replacement panel attaches back onto the car in all the proper places with minimal panel warpage.
