Getting rid of triangles while maintaining the flow


I am doing some hard-body modeling and almost done so far with the front part but I got stuck.

I ended up with some triangles and I do not know how to get rid of them while maintaining the lines I used to make the flow of the mesh.

Also, I do not know if I can keep some of them.

I selected the triangles in the attached screenshot, and I attached the green lines I want the model to follow.

Thank you Dare-o!

I will try them on and will come back with a screenshot showing the result.

Thanks once more.
