There are two types of pegs: 1) Threaded 2) and Bolt On.
For threaded, just spin the peg counterclockwise. For bolt on, use a socket wrench and extension(if needed).

As for color, i would stick with flat black, instead of gloss or high gloss. Make sure the paint you get is intended for metal and not plastic or fabric. Theres a type of rattle can(spray can) paint that bonds to metal, try that kind.

+1 on the two types thing. I just want to point out that there are two kinds of threaded. if they're any good, they go right on the threaded axle and hold the wheels in place. if they're this type, they should have some sort of place to put a wrench on 'em to take 'em off. if they're really cheap, they just twist on over the bolt that holds the wheel in place.

+1 on using flat black. gloss just doesn't work. trust me, I've tried it. it looks like crap. if you can't find the special paint that bonds to metal, try anti-rust paint. you can get decent stuff in department stores for around 5 bucks. for really good stuff, actually go to a paint store.

I think you should still have a bolt on threaded pegs.

If your the type of person that likes a glossy finish, start with flat black and add a few coats of clearcoat (clear) afterward untill your happy with it.
The reason gloss paints dont work directly on the metal (or old paint) is because its too smooth for the paint to stick to. Flat black adds a bit of texture which is why you gloss/clearcoat it afterward.

Then you're dumb but you probably can't grind anyways so it doesn't matter.
