Removing fascia board with out damaging drip edge.

Any tips on how to tackle this? Since I dropped my ceiling of my porch to level it, it will end up being lower than the current fascia board. Debating between ,as I asked in another thread, to just try to add another fascia board 1x12 or 1x10(depending which works best) over the 1x8 board in place which should fit in the drip edge space available, but concerned then once gutters are installed that the drip edge will not feed into gutters. So this is why I am considering just changing the boards instead of just adding board on top.

You need to use a sawzall with a long thin metal blade and cut the nails that hold the fascia to each rafter tail. Then the fascia will drop down once all the nails are cut.
