Default How to remove the rear bumper

Need to pull the rear bumper on the V1 to get a spot repainted. I see nuts inside the trunk and plastic tabs in the wheel wells and bottom by the spare tire well. Are there any tricks to get it off ?

No tricks that I remember. Just start removing the nuts and gently tugging to make sure you got all of them. I remember some of them in the wheel area being a PITA to get too when re-installing it.
