Question DIY Aluminum Door Trim Install?

I am in the process of dressing-up the interior of my Linear. I've already added the aluminum trim piece around the shift lever and the aluminum steering wheel inserts where the radio controls are located.

I'm now wanting to add the interior aluminum door trim bits and was wondering if it's worth paying to have the four pieces installed at the dealer, or is it something that I could accomplish myself in a weekend?

(I did find the "Door Panel Removed with Pics" thread that was started back in 2003 in the FAQ Section, but there are no pics now (?) and not much discussion of what was actually involved in getting the panels off.)

Any advice/recommendations would be greatly appreciated; this is a really SUPER forum!

Yeah, you know I was thinking of posting a picture or two but I'm new to this forum and have yet to figure out how I can actually do this so...

Maybe in a day or two I'll get this sorted and post a pix
