Looking to spray my side air vents to match Sahara brushed aluminum colors(from bumper inserts and headlight rings), but didn't know if anyone has removed those covers yet.....hopefully just a pop out kind of process versus removing wheel well liners, etc.....anyone? anyone? Bueller?

Haven’t done it but I like your idea. Let me know how it turns out. I was looking at the vent decals from Pixeldecals (blacktrimmed in silver) but may paint them instead.

I read somewhere on here that they pop out with a trim removal tool.

I removed mine with a bondo mud spreader.and there is 3 plastic clips you can reach with a long screw driver wrapped in tape for paint protection.

I separated mine from the black mesh part so I could paint them
I like that, any pictures of what they look like post painted and installed?

Maybe he dried them in the oven and it didn't turn out well, and his wife killed him for making the house smell and ruining the oven.

I think we should open an investigation.

Yeah....or maybe he used the wrong paint causing pyroclastic melting which requires a minimum of a 3 month curing period.
