I just did it about a month ago on the exact year and car, and its a bitch if you don't have a lift. I spent close to a week on it, at about 2 hours a day. Unfortunately I didn't take pictures but can most likely talk you through any complications. Try and do a search on what I wrote.

Removing the cross-brace, and all the suspension and steering components attached to it. You must take the front tires off before doing this. After you get the brace out of the way everything is fairly simple from there. There are a few tight bolts, and 2 secret/hidden ones towards the back of the pan. You will need a torx bolt set to remove a few bolts towards the back, which go into the pan from the tranny. Once you get the pan to drop a bit, you need to remove the two bolts holding the oil pump pick-up inside the pan. You also need to take off the bolt holding the timing chain on.
