You can take off one at a time for paint reasons. I would first support the tractor under the bell housing and lift the front wheel till it barely touches the ground. If you do take off both sides be advised that your hood may need to be refitted to the grill by adjusting the radiator base and top hose connection.

Since you are cleaning for a repaint (unless this is detail for retail) it would be good to go ahead and remove front bolster as it will be caked also and they are all but impossible to clean without turning over. Rattle can paint is the same paint as in the can if you using IH 2150 so don't sell the job short just because of the application method.
