Worried about an in car enhancement looking out of place in your vehicle or the trim not sitting back correctly, We have loads of customers wanting to know if there car is going to go back the way they had it before an accessory was fitted. Cars are a lot better in terms of being built now more than ever before, Where before around 15 years + the trims in vehicles were not always a perfect fit and when removed never sit back how they did when it left the factory when new. The Trim clips and securing lugs are better at going back together now due to them being made to come apart and go back together when removed correctly with the correct tools. How do we remove trims without marking/scratching them? We use special plastic trim removal tools which come from the USA. Once we have taken apart your vehicle it will go back together the way we found it so you can rest assured your installation and vehicle will look perfect.
