Want to remove rear license plate bracket

Sup Guys. Wanted to see if anyone could help me out here. I want to remove the plastic (what looks to be separate) license plate bracket. I have hopes to wrap it in carbon fiber. Has anyone dome this or know how easy it is to remove and how to? I have several other accents with car in fiber on my car and I think it would look dope. Unfortunately I have some damage on it as it is now hence why I'd like to wrap it.Click image for larger version

It's either 2 or 4 screws then slide the bracket off plate.
About 0.2 difficulty out of 10.

Have not done the wrap. I'd buy one that's already done, doesn't seem worth the time to wrap and have it look decent.

Not the actual license plate I mean the trapezoid looking plastic piece that actually holds the plate to bumper

Oh, sorry. Now I got you.
That's just a bumper trim piece to fit the US and Canada sized license plates. Should be a couple of fasteners behind the license plate and may some clips / tabs too. Take the plate off and start poking around, or stop by a body shop and they can have it off for you in 5 minutes.

Many thanks, I'll look into it. I'm gonna try to wrap it. I bought the car and it has 2 screw head intentions and a chip or 2. Hoping I can wrap it, to cover up and too add a sporty look, hopefully not trashy. It takes a while to wrap. Thanks for the insight much appreciated
