Just insert a thin screwdriver & turn at 1 o'clock and turn the vent left & pop them out. Watch Gunnys video.

Anyone have an idea on how to paint all the plastic chrome pieces black? Seems like a huge undertaking, but i would love to get rid of all of it.

Yep. Remove them. Scratch all the shine off of them with a green or red scotchbrite scratch pad, clean and spray. Make sure you get ALL of the gloss off, or your paint wont stick. I like to use some "adhesion promoter" spray, before I paint on plastics. Its a bit more of an undertaking than non-chrome items but it should work.
