Ahhhh Bumper Pad

So I've been trying to get my bumper off half the day and am now waiting till the weekend to cut off the bolts. But now I need the bumper pad off too and I dont have any idea how. The clips dont look like the unclip. Any help would be appreciated.

As far as I remember the pad comes off but it is a major pita. Just take your time one clip at a time

Wow I got mine off to paint in 3 or 4 minutes with just my hands. The hardest part was trying to not break the tag lights. It was sitting in the hot FL sun and very flexible when I took it off.
