    Door Panel Trim Removal

    Yes I searched, all I found was how to remove the wood and I already got that...

    I recently removed all the wood inside my car and painted it body color. I am thinking I need to do some of the other silver pieces now. Does anybody know if you can/how to remove the silver trim pieces off the lower part of the door panels? I am hoping to avoid masking the entire door panel to paint them. I have attached a photo below, any help would be appreciated.

    Like you, I have seen the detailed writeup on the wood pieces, but I have never seen anything on the chrome map pocket trim.

    For those interested, I figured it out. They have plastic rivets that hold them on, I took a dremel and ground them down then with a little persuasion they came off. I will post pics later on of the finished product.
