you really need to remove the cage to be sure off getting them off clean, but you can get them off by using a small screwdriver to push the clips down, you also need luck and hope too  :laugh:

Just apply the layers of primer/paint very/lacquer thinly. Lots of thin coats is better than a few thick ones as it'll run and bubble.
