front end facelift- Do I need to pull the bumper to get out grills go carbon fiber

Well not actual CF lol. I have a shop that does an amazing job with hydro carbonfiber and I am going to have them address a few pieces on the exterior including the upper/lower grills, headlight surrounds, lower front lip, hood grills, cowl, gas cap assy., and the spoiler to start. Instead of a silver base we are going with a darker gray so it is more subtle on my Black car but will be obvious. I am on the fence with the front grills. I was going to use a red base to throw it off but it might be to cheesy. The emblems on the front will definately be red. We will see how it comes out first. The silver car is my plan, black car is the actual test case. HAHA

So my question is this. Do I need to pull the bumper to get all these parts off. If so is there any easy write up.

Yes you have to pull the front bumper off to get both grilles to come out. It will make your life ten times easier getting the other parts off as well.

Upper grill can be removed without pulling the bumper.

Thats a grille surround. Not the actual grille. And the lower grille cant be removed without taking the bumper off either
