Default grill/ surround separation?

alright, I just ordered my replacement grill, coming in black, I want to paint the surround to match my truck like the old one did. Is there a way to pull the honeycomb out of the insert to avoid overspray? or am I just stuck with a lot of tape?

My rangers an 02 ranger when I painted mine I just did it all black as my trucks black but once you take the grill off the truck if you flip it over you’ll see that the honeycomb is held in by some tabs but it does look like you will end up braking the tabs to get it out, well at least on mine,
I would recommend just taping it off

thanks, I'll take a look when it comes in next week, right now I'm just trying to plan my attack. I'm just a tad worried about over spray since I'm painting with Ford's brighter red
