Reach in through the holes...and PULL! If it's cold out you might try warming that area.

It's fairly easy, the day has to be around 70F or hotter though, i did mine today at around 58F, and had to drive the car around for things to get hot inside the engine bay, plus parked the car so the sun was facing the front grilles for about 30 min, after that i pulled the fackers out, it took a bit of force compared to the video, but finally took them out. they wouldn't come out in the morning when i tried initially, then i found out about the temperature when i was looking in the forum how to pop them loose

You won't need to wait the full 4 hours to pop them back. Give it an hour, then pop them back in.

When I made that video the car was just in the sun for that long, wasn't on purpose.... Get it a half hour or so in the sun and they pull as easy...

NP. I'm even plastidipping rust spots on my other car. Way better and lasts longer than rustoleum.

Tell me about it, this stuff is amazing, i painted my stock 18's wheels 3 weeks ago with primer and black paint, because i didn't know about plastidip back then had i know before and i'd used it in a heartbit.

Armor All works amazing on it to-makes it shine sooooo good!

I normally spray the foam on my tires and wipe the excess from them onto the wheels, so easy and looks GREAT!

Just to show newbies like me how good this stuff is
I think i'll do my car letters and emblems as well, and like others, the window trims, it doesn't seem like we have to be super careful with the paint because it comes right off with a micro polish towel, lol geez it look super easy

Off to Lowes again now to get me 3 cans on this shiat there is no need to remove the window trims, just some tape to mask the bigger parts, and some patience removing the excess. is that how people are doing this with our cars ? I just want to make sure.
