I shall be replacing the same on my 77B this coming winter. Is it still
easier than removing the fenders? Or am I facing the same battle? I
haven't removed fenders myself but understand it is no easy task.

No and yes! No, it is not easy depending on how much gunk, tar, and
other assorted stuff has bonded itself to both the rubber and fenders
over the years. The real complication is getting the screws out. Yes,
it is possible to do w/out removing the fenders. Make sure you have the
right screw extraction tool before you start. I'd use a hand impact
driver w/ the correct screwdriver tip to START with. Otherwise, after
you booger up the heads, it will be nearly impossible to remove them
