You have to do it properly or you will lose it's value.

Screen OUT, doors off, window frames out, bonnet off, boot off and all rubbers removed etc etc.

Patterned outer rubbers for door/window frame replacements are not good and I don't know if any originals are able to be got for a corniche but if you short cut it will look like the picture in no time at all. Just the mention of 'lining tape' or 'foam in shut lines' would put me off. The only time lining tape would be needed would be if you intended a dual colour.

Prep, prep, prep and more prep and it is costly but worth the expense.

Also when trim removed make sure it is not allowed to be stored badly as permanent indents will be made in the surfaces if anything is put on top of it or leather parts put in contact with each other can cause damage.

Just my opinion
