Everything that I painted on the car I removed. The first piece I did was the gas cap which was the easiest. The headlights are kinda tricky to remove if you have the washer jets but their do-able. At first I couldn't find out how to remove the chrome trim when I had them off the car so I masked off the headlight really well, sanded it down and sprayed 2 coats of SEM trim black paint. After 6-7 months or so of motoring - they started to look like rocky road. So I took em off again and removed the chrome headlight rings and wrapped em in two layers of satin black vinyl. This seems to be holding up and it looks great. Now if I could just figure out the best way to get inside the headlights and paint the chrome in there

The door handles were a bitch to get off of the car, a friend and I forked around for a couple hours just to remove two hex bolts and the handle cable. Pain in the ass!!!

Thanks to SamTrak for the pointers!
