Default 2013 lexus gs350 aluminum door panel trim removal

Looking to replace my current ones that are dinged up. I have a trim tool set but am not faimiliar with the process and would like to know how involved it would be before I buy the replacement parts.

This video along with eddie420 guide help me tremendously. Be sure to remove top channel guide first when you go to put door panel back. It's 1000x easier doing it this way. Watch this video, it's for an ES 300H but the process is very similar to our GS.

Tip: get yourself some door clips cuz you're bound to break some when you're taking off the door panels.

I wish it was aluminum, unfortunately all the silver trim in the car is painted plastic.
