Not sure what you mean by "wings"; but if you mean the fenders, there are a couple of other nuts, too.

There are a couple of large ones at the inside rear of the wheel well and there are another couple below the headlight surround. It's a complete nut and bolt job. No cutting or welding required.

I don't remember, but mine was a G500 (W463). The headlight surround area is a bit more convoluted and complicated than a W460. Also, the W463 has fenderliners and a bunch of stuff attached to the underside, which yours probably does not.
