Some take it off, some leave it on. If you leave it on, you just need to tape everything real good.

The thing is, I wouldn't and didn't take them off. There's to much of a chance of breaking the clips that hold them on. And those things are not the easiest to find (even at a dealer)

I'd use something like newspaper to get some more protection of areas you don't want overspray on. I'm going to see if I can get a treatment done on my cladding this weekend. If it doesn't work, I'll look at painting it. I've painted the tow hooks before just masking off the bumper and using newspaper. The thing is that paint rubs right off when you actually use the tow hooks. Not the best of looks, but at least it doesn't have that never used, just for looks, look. LOL

It is much easier to paint them when they are off. Though you probably will break some clips.

It aint too hard, just basically lift up from the bottom and pull outward. Just do it VERY slowly and try to only break a few clips.

just leave them on you can do the same job with them on its too risky to break those stupid clips i wihs i had left mine on when i did it, the front and rear bumpers will be better if you remove them and paint but for side cladding just tape it off

I dont have a before shot, but I cleaned & degreased mine with scote brite pads & dentured alcohol, then taped up the doors, hood, etc and sprayed them on the car - I did two coats about 1.5 cans each coat, that was 3 years ago and its held up great. Just used Krylon flat paint.
