i was using a knife i have a few scratches now. so what you r saying is that just pry it off w/ a small, perhaps a jewelers' screwdriver and it should come off? r there likely chances that i may break the rings or the other plastic peice? well lemme know if they come out easy, so then i'll know how much force to use. also why are ppl not using primer on these plastics peices, i thought the rule was that when you paint you have to prime it first? plz, lemme know about these things.
