NICE~ Little things that makes us happy eh? I think my approach is a bit , better, as you can pop the whole section out fairly easy and then flip it and use your fingers to snap out the plastic silver clips out w/out braking them. Where if you try to pinch tweak and pull you will most likely end up w some broken clips...
Glad to do my part and be a test monkey
Here are some pics of my DIY painted sides. I also went ahead and painted the back //M3 logo.
