I have an LX and I want to wrap or paint the front bumper side vents, (they are silver in all other trims but body color matched in the LX) does anybody know how to remove them from the bumper?
If you use Plastidip, you won't need to remove them at all. I can fully explain why but it's probably best to check out DipYourCar - World Famous Peelable Auto Paint as they have all of the info you'll need. I've used this product on badging and rims in the past with very good results. It's easy to deal with.

Thanks for the suggestion. I’ve thought about plastidip but because of the area where these vents are I don’t feel like it’s going to hold up too well. Chips, bugs, road grime etc. I’d rather wrap them but I also don’t feel like taking down the bumper to remove these. I might give the plastidip a try.. maybe apply glossifier too.

Make sure you go a minimum of 5 coats of Plastidip. Preferably 6 or 7. Don't worry, it's not going to seem thick but the extra coats do wonders for durability. I've had it on my rims for 4 years and it just started to chip a bit in the last year. Best part is, if it chips, you just peel it off and apply again. It comes off really easily by peeling and anything left with GooGone. Good luck whichever route you take.
