How to remove rear bumper moulding?

I was able to get the side mouldings and front impact strips off. How do the rear moulding pieces come off? do they just pop off like the little moulding pieces right behind the front wheels? i would figure as such- but they didn't want to pop off like the front pieces. are they supposed to slide to the outside and then off- something like the door pieces?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cMCswzT72F4 - good youtube i found that shows how to take off the door mouldings in the event some of you don't know how.

anyone? does the chome trim come off in the same fashion that the front impact strips do? or, does it come off of the mouldings like the pieces on the side of the car (little clips every 6" or so)?

nevermind- the rear chrome is the same as the front. just used a plastic pry tool and slowly popped it off.

Are you taking them off to paint them black?

i will have pictures up in a day or so. i snapped a few during the process, but i haven't posted them just yet.

i took off the chrome in order to wrap that in matte black vinyl. i decided i could get the edges to look better if i took them off to wrap rather than try to do it on the car- not to mention the fact i wouldn't have to run an exacto knife along the paint/clear coat. i also yanked off the 'sport' badges that are on the little section of moulding just behind the front wheel.
