Enclosing Porch on 2nd Story


I am going to be enclosing an open air covered porch on my second story that is off my master suite. My question is with flashing it in with the remainder of the house. There are 2x12 supports that are covered with aluminum that butt up against the soffit supporting the roof. After framing up the walls, I am wondering if I need to pull of the gutters, fascia, and soffits off to place the OSB and house wrap on then replace the soffits, fascia, and gutters over the wrap? Is there an easier way to make it more water tight then going through all of that? Also, for the sides of the house, do I need to pull of the vinyl corners and j channels to get house wrap underneath the existing siding to tie it all in? Any help would be great, as I am hoping to avoid pulling everything off. Thanks everyone. I added an attachment of the supports and soffit at the corner of the porch.

Hard to tell much from that picture and that odd angle.
There's no way to tie a wall into that outside corner without removing the siding and out side corner.
From what I can see there's no need to remove the coil stock and soffit.
If that wall is done right the wall to the right and the new wall should be seamless and look like it was original, so there's no good way to do it without removing the shutter and the siding to weave it in around the new windows.
