For example, it says to take off the inside handle cover, then the inside door pull handle, THEN take off the door trim piece?
You cannot remove the center plastic trip piece, the way it's shown in those pictures, without removing the entire door panel first.
There is no reason to remove the door molding for the windows.
I'm going to do my door handles with some CF overlays like was found on ebay recently, just need some pricing from Compact Divisions first. After that, I'll look at it.

I had to do this when I had my car painted last year. Most of the steps in the diagram aren't needed, other than taking off the door panel. Its pretty simple, you just have to look at it from every angle once you get the door panel off.

(Be sure your window is rolled up)
1. Remove door panel (7 screws, the door handle cover, the corner plate (pressure clips), a few more pressure clips and some wiggling. Disconnect mirror, window and door light wires.
2. Remove plastic covering door panel (use sturdy, disposable latex gloves, the tar stuff is a mess and will NOT come off your hands!!)
3. Look in the door through one of the many large holes and you can see the handle. I'm pretty sure there's two bolts you can easily undo. The door handle should start to come out from the outside.
4. Disconnect the connecting rod, you should be able to reach it from the outside.
You may have to remove one or two extra bolts, but you don't have to mess with the other steps DTN mentioned about all the window mechanism. Like you *may* have to remove the left bolt in this step:
His steps 7-11 are not necessary, among others.
