Paint power window button covers

Not sure what they are called but has anyone painted these? How hard are they to remove? Got pics?

Are you talking about the wood grain pieces. If so they just snap off.

If you pop off the bottom right and bottom left black panels (they have a slot on the bottom and come out fairly easy) there are a couple bolts behind them take those out and the rest should pop off without breaking

Yea there is a bolt behind the aux input and whatever is in that same spot on the other side, I forgot. The rest just pops out. Be careful with that thin piece right above the radio it is easy to crack.

Hydro Graphing is the way to go. Its automotive grade, meaning it is as durable if not more durable than the paint on your exterior. I have it on diff covers, dash pieces, valve covers... Its great stuff. PM me if you want more info.
