    i have just done mine and it was not as bad as i thought it was going to be.
    the centre caps push out of the centre from the rear of the wheel and then the vx badge is held in with 4 little clips and it just pops off.

    I've got to say, I was going to paint mine but now I have very cherry and rimwax I am REALLY happy with my wheels silver. They really shine and look sweet. I still might do them one day though!

    In answer to your question, if you are confident, go for it! Good luck too.
