Definitely plastic trim tools otherwise you will damage the trim. Allen heads do not always simply unscrew and you need to lever behind with fork shaped tool.

As @CALLAKN has posted above, there's loads of cheap sets. I've got the red set pictured which I bought for one job and I can't count the number of times they've come in useful. Not worth scratching something visible for the sake of a tenner

The cheap ones are fine....... they are just softer plastic

Easiest way to remove those is using a wood screw partially in then pull...

I used 2mm and does the job, remember its all about added mass to the panels so the more/thicker it is the more weight you are adding to van
When you get it you will be surprised how heavy a box is !
