Remove/Paint WAP cover

We need to paint our 7372s black in a few of our rooms. I am trying to get the cover off without breaking it. Does anyone have any recommendations on how to do that? I am willing to buy a tool kit to get the cover off without damaging it.

Don't buy anything.

You need 2 small screw drivers to open it. But first you need to unscrew one screw in the middle.

Start on one side with a SD and lift it just a bit, and then use another SD on the same side. Then live them in the hoes that you'll see there and use a bit of hand work on the perpendicular side where the ETH port is.

It really isn't an engineering task. Just do it.

Just a warning that this technically voids the product's limited lifetime warranty.

The coloring or the removing of the cover?

The paint mainly. It would be better to find a plastic enclosure to fit and then paint that.
