The fenders are easy to get off, but very difficult to get back on without scratching the paint. I took some foil tape, then peeled the backing off, and used the tape itself to tape the waxy paper backing over the screw holes while sliding the fenders back in place. Using the front fender as an example, punch a hole in the paper over one of the mounting holes, so a bolt will go through it. Then put the fender in place, with the tape backing between it and the forks to protect the paint, put in the one bolt where you poked the hole in the paper, and tighten it a few turns. It will help hold the fender in place so you don't accidentally drop it. then one at a time, remove the tape and backing and put the bolts through the fender and into the fork. It should not damage the paint anywhere but where the fender fits against the fork, which is hidden. It can also help to loosen the front axle nut, and wedge a piece of 2x4 between the front lower forks (through the spokes in the wheels) to gain just a little more clearance between the fork and fender.
