Grill: how to remove mesh behind to just get chrome by itself

I jus bought a new grill and recieved it today (overland edition). I want to paint it black to color match the car using sandpaper, primer, ect ect. How do I remove the back black mesh to get the chrome part all alone? I do not want to get paint on the plastic black part! Please help me out thank you

I see those but don't know if you push them up, down, or to the sides or what! How do you take them off??

Re: Grill: how to remove mesh behind to just get chrome by itself

use a small flathead screwdriver and lift them slightly while push the painted portion out....

use caution not to break them. You just need to release the pressure they are applying.
