Hi Billy, I decided to just replace the whole front because it was easier than piecing in. If you are replacing anything in the rounded front corners you will need to do it in 2 pieces because to stuff the plywood under the wall you'll need to be able to lay it flay against the frame first and then slide it under. You'll notice from the pictures on my web log (link below) that I did the whole front in 3 pieces. I speak briefly about getting the floor out in a post titled a tale of 2 holes.
You probably have the same front frame as I do. I found a good horizontal seam in the plywood and cut there. The trick is that even if you set your circular saw for 3/4" you will not cut all the way through because there are doubled up (and glued) pieces in some of that area. I was able to cut 3/4" deep and pry it up with a crow bar. You'll want to double up strips of plywood where your new seam doesn't have support. Like glue and screw a 6" wide piece along and under your seam so 3" support the abutting sheet. I'm sorry that I didn't take any assembly pictures.
FYI: Looking at this picture the only place that the plywood isn't doubled up is where the one long frame member runs front to back.
