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!
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!!
