Looking at painting skid plates on my exclusive, the rear one looks easy to take off, not so sure on front, any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thankyou

Well they are off, both a right pain in the arse!!! Rear one half a dozen clips and screws across the bottom, and clips across the top with a screw in each corner which snapped the plastic, luckily not noticeable! The front one had to take under tray off, the rubber strip across the bottom and 4 clips up the side!! All of just need to paint now. Fingers crossed!

did you have to take the rear bumper off to get at the two top screws of the rear skid plate ?

Should have yes, but didn't realise they were there, they have both snapped off!! Have refit skid plate to see if it's noticeable and it's not luckily!! Have removed and will start painting primer today!!
