Any advice for my ZL1 rocker install?

Have the rocker set coming in the mail so wanted to get ahead of the game and learn all I can before tackling the project. Would love any tips if possible.

I think there is a Youtube video on the removal and install. I also think there is a how to on this site too. If new clips come with the new rockers you won't have to worry much about broken clips. Get one of those cheap upholstery removal sets from NAPA.

pretty much all of the above, and to stress about finding out if your replacement rockers have clips. you're going to break a few and if they're not coming with any clips, find some replacements prior to the install.

Rockers

Do not put pressure on the surrounding sheet metal when using the trim tools, it dents easily

Thanks all. Yeah definitely was gonna get a trim tool. Mainly taking my time will help too. I seem to rush things at times.

Get some plastic trim removal tools and some painters tape for the painted areas. A blanket or cardboard to lay on. Take your time. Yes, you will most likely break a few clips. A couple of extra hands will make it easier, but you can do it yourself.
