same here. thinking about painting them jet black to match.

my only question, if anyone knows, is can you remove the rails to paint them and then re-install them? Or do I have to cover and tape up the rest of my roof and car in order to paint them?

any help or advice is greatly appreciated

They remove quite easily. A small screwdriver may help to pry. They slide one way or another.
