epainting fender flares

I have the gray fender flares that look kinda rough with somes stains/faded spots. I tried the restore black on one of them and it turned it a couple of shades darker but still showed the stains/spots. I am thinking of taking them off and painting them black. But here is my dilemma. My truck is teal green and i have the gray trim around the bumper and the trim strip down along the door and bed. Are these easy peices to take off and paint as well? Should I paint them black or just repaint them the stock gray color. I do plan on repainting the truck black down the road. pls tell me your thoughts.

If you don't feel like painting them, try Stoner More Shine (tire product). I put it on my trim 6 weeks ago, and it still looks brand new. So far, it's out-lasted anything I've ever tried.

The original owner of my 01 painted the flares flat black. I recently masked them off and repainted them a dark flat grey due to fading. Now they look like new.
No runs, no drips, no errors.
