There should be 2 13mm thread-cutting nuts on the back of the one on the front grill, thats how you take that one off. The trunk lid one is on with double-stick tape. Fishing line and a hair-dryer will work. Spray paint your desired color and you're set to go.

If you're trying to paint the entire thing I suggest taking a high grit sand paper and giving it a light sanding. Then when finished put the first layer of paint on lightly, then let it dry and then put a heavier but not to heavy second coat. I've had mine painted for almost 2 years now, and still looks pretty damn good.

In my opinion I think you should just leave the back on off, gives the back a cleaner look. But that's up to you.

I used GM Original Black. I don't recommend it though, it was pretty pricey for the small can. I would just use a Krylon Black. Krylon does well.
