Well just imagine grabbing a piece of bare metal at about 120 degrees or so mid summer or around 0 in the middle of winter haha

Yeah, it's not fun. I can't wait to grab the solid aluminum T-handle in the Camaro, after it has sat in the hot sun - glad I haven't had to, thus far.

While I had my trim out I would spray a bit of expansion foam on the back side. Like 3 blobs on that long piece then let it cure and trim almost flush with a blade knife leaving maybe a 1/16", this way they wouldn't rattle, squeak or make cracking noise. Nothing worst when you're trying to listen to music. Or glue soft foam if you have some laying around.

So that will prevent any rattling of the trim? I think I have some spray foam laying around here somewhere...

I've owned 3 Cobalts and this did the trick for me, it keeps a bit of pressure on the push clips just enough. Especially that long one above the glove box.

When removing trim some clips got left behind in the car. Do I need to remove these or just push the trim back into them?

It is easier to pull the clips out of the holes and put them back on the trim, then you won't have to get mad with it when you want to re-install your freshly painted pieces.
