rusty wing replacement

One of my front wings is getting a bit rusty on my E36 and I want to replace it. My Haynes manual offers no information on how to do this. Can someone who has done this please shed some light? Most importantly, is the wing welded or bolted on? Will alignment be a problem? Is this a task the budding DIY enthusiast can perform or should I take it to a garage. Thanks.
