Once the headlight is open, remove 3 T25 screws that hold the trim and bezels inside the headlight assembly. The next step is to remove the corner lens (regardless if you plan to paint them) and then the rest of the headlight trim and bezels. The corner lens is hinged inside the headlight assembly - you simply need to unfasten a retaining clip and then it swings out for easy removal. I then uncliped the corner lens from its bracket and painted it with chrome paint.
