Smile Bumper thingies

Just wondering if anyone on here have removed these extra bumper stops. I believe that they only come that way on the ones sold in North America. It seems like I'd be fairly easy to do, but I'm not sure of what kind of holes would be left from removing them. Have any of you seen a video of these being removed? We have it scheduled to be wrapped, so I think I could easily fill the holes if there's not too many.
Any info would be appreciated.
Thanks

It is very easy to remove the bumperettes. There is one screw on the bottom of each bumperette. If you watch TTGator video that he created, thanks by the way, he shows you how to remove it using 6MM allen. Skip 15 minutes into his video.

Have you run a "bumperettes removal" search upon the forum?

Yeah, I think my searches would have had better results if I had used the term “bumperette”.
Thank you!
