They can be installed later, but it is not simple. There are trim pieces that need to go on after the boards are removed (and vice versa). Many of the retainer clips have one life. It can be done, it will look factory either way, but it is not simple to do. I bought a set from MBZ for $761.00 and, without instructions, installed them myself in about 3 hours and 2 beers. If I can....
Also, if you search you'll find quite a bit of stuff. Good luck, Brian
