Changing the Power Pad. Hard or easy?

The grey paint of the power pad on my Luxe is wearing/chipping off. I found some Grey and Black power pads online. Debating on swapping out.
Has anyone ever changed it?
Level of difficulty?
Thanks everyone.

The "Black Power pad" is the cushion that goes under the silver one. My advice is to not worry about it. If you are one of those people that have OCD and cannot live without your gun being perfect its easy. Just pry off the 2 pieces and use a little super glue to glue the new ones on.

Just take off the old by sticking like an allen key under it and pushing. Then put the new one in its place with super glue on the edges of the cover. It's pretty frustrating sometimes as you can align the button wrong and it'll be annoying to turn it on. PM Pooty for a mirror finish one where its shiny and theres no paint to chip off.

I was thinking of replacing it too but eventually it'll chip again. But thanks to EVAC's suggestion, POOTY agreed to polish it while he had it for his other Mods. Will post pics for all interested.
POOTY IS THE MAN!!
