      OMG! I sooo laughed at your comment!

      I am reviewing posts - first, before I waste someones time answering my question that might be already be asked and answered somewhere on here already.

      But when I saw your comment I just could not resist making a reply - was sooo darn funny because I DO NOT want my first attempt to be all curly either lol.

      So - since your first attempt - ( I don't wanna do it like your first attempt lol) what have you learned about removing any and all trim from a car

      I will be removing all the trim from my 68 Satellite 4dr and don't wanna ruin it by my own stupidity. I do not have or want to purchase any specialty tools if don't have to.

      Any information would be greatly appreciated.

      They're not expensive so why chance it...Much easier to avoid damage if you have the tool(s)..here's a set just for example:
