Default Fairing air deflectors disassembly

How do you take these apart if it's even possible. I want to Plasti Dip the backside like I did my Memphis Shades fork mounted wind deflectors but can't see how to break them down without breaking them.

I never took mine apart... I painted the front side with VHT nightshades. It didn't look that great so then I Plastdipped them... Didn't really like that either, so now they are sitting in drawer in my tool box. I only had flat black plasti dip though... I think glossier is the way to go here Vin.

I took mine apart, it looks like they are permanently assembled, but they are anything but.

The pins that hold them in place are basically in halves, really once you get them up close it will become obvious.

I tried to paint mine with tint but will now color match them.

The tint looked like crap, next is color match.

The plan is to paint the backside with Plasti Dip because it looks so good on the Memphis Shades fork deflectors. I'll take one off and mess with it, if it doesn't come apart easy I'll leave them as is.
