Painting the sidesteps.
First up is to remove the sidesteps. The are 2 clips which need to be squeezed and pushed at the same time. A pair of pliers works well for this.
Once those are ready to be popped out, the final tab can be pryed of. A flat head screwdriver and a piece of cloth so you don't damage the paint, and it's all off.
Now you are ready to sand and paint.
