since I painted my grille black. I am thinking of doing all the gray plastic on my zj the same color. I would perfure to remove it to paint, just not sure how to do it. Is any of the pieces screwed on or just clips?

If you were applying a line-x type material- I would definitely leave them on and just mask off around them; but then again I have never actually worked with real automobile paint.

a suggestion abou the rattle can, use bedliner
just scuff up real good, wipe down with degreaser & spray

I have a real good luck with bedliner sticking & looking good, most of all durable!
