Hello, im new here and could use a little help...

Im currently repainting the black siding, fender flares, and black areas of the bumpers on my 1990 Golf.
I ran in to a couple problems while attempting to start the fender flares. Firstly my old body guy who put them on, apparently used some type of riveting system to keep them on. So, my only option now is to paint them on the car...

As risky as that sounds, my main problem lies in the fact that the bumpers would be alot easier to paint if they were off the car. Hopefully painting the fender flares would also be easier without the bumpers being in a tiny bit in the way.
So, im just wondering if there is anything special i need to do in order to get the bumpers off? hopefully a couple bolts? im not sure as i've never tried.
I looked at the rear bumper, and from a quick glance noticed one large screw on the left side, and the only thing i can grasp from looking at the front bumper is there are two bolts holding the bumper on, located on the front beside the license plate (which i know shouldnt be there, but i was very naive first time car buyer).
Thanks for any help offered
