1. use 2 hands to wiggle out strip. soft plastic
2. use trim tool to pull out frame. soft plastic
3. use trim tool to remove from latches. hard plastic.

i plasti dipped 4 coats of white and 3 coats of clear with cans i had lying around.

removal took max 2 minutes.

I'm impressed with what a difference this makes. I wonder if there is a way to match Orion silver?

There are a number of companies online that make high quality custom-mixed spray paint. Just need your paint code. This is one of them: www.apstowerpaint.com
