safe way to remove the rubber trim around my 318i

Howdy folks,
I have all the replacement rubber trim that goes around my car as the previous owner painted all the trim white on this car and i want to change it all back to original.
I am wondering if anyone knows an easy way to remove the old stuff without damaging it to much??

Your help is appreciated!
Thanks

There is a small nut on one end of each piece. ( front fender) nut on inside of wheel well "8mm" (door) nut is just inside door jam just under latch and ( rear Quarter) nut is just insde the wheel well ... once I undid the the nuts the just pulled right of ... be gentle though you dont want to bend the Chrome inserts or break the clips.

Hope this helps
