Very easy to install. Just go get some rivets, the 1/8 inch ones from the hardware store and you're in business. To take your old beltline trim off (I recommend that you replace that at the same time as this) just undo the small screw at the end where the door opens. Its under the lip and then the trim will slide off with some persuasion. It slides off with an aft motion. then just drill out the old rivets and throw that old petrified one in the trash and put the new one on.
