    Is there some trick to removing fender flares?
    I don't want to break them, im only removing them to get them painted.
    thank you for your time and efforts.

    There are a few screws hidden in the wheel well and plastic clips holding them to the fender. Some of the clips will probably break. You can get them online. YouTube is your friend.

    Wrap some tape around a standard screw driver and use it to gently pry at the clips.

    cool, that's kinda what I thought but wasn't sure if there was some trick.
    I have a trim tool that will work perfect, thanks for the info.
