Looks awesome, I've been there it's hard long tedious work but worth the effort. Those silver things are drains of sorts for when the shell gets dipped at the factory. They put them in when they're ready to do the final paint.

i just got done doing the same thing to the front of my car, I think I pulled out 40lbs from under the seats and floormats. Good job. I hear if you do it in the winter on a cold day, you just slam it with a hammer and it shatters out.
