Remove the paint or remove the trim pieces? My thought would be mask and paint them. That's what I did to add a silver accent around my shifter (manual, see build thread for pics.)

I think you pull out the vents first. Literally grab the vent and rip the shit out of it. Once it's out you can pull off the rings. The rings around the speakers will need to be masked off and painted.
You sure I just pull? I dont feel like breaking them lol

Uh, I'd get a second opinion on that..... May be right on the money but just the same.

Glad it worked without damage. Painting them black, or something else?
