Typically you don't "trade in" a vehicle and THEN go get custom things off of it. You either take them off BEFORE you give up possession or you take them off when the vehicle is being appraised for trade in value. Unless you have some written agreement otherwise, you likely traded in the vehicle as it was and need to be careful you don't breach your written agreement and get a repo for your efforts.

Contracts
Most people and business enter into contracts on almost a daily basis. Simply put, a contract is a legally binding agreement between two parties. One party makes an offer to do something in exchange for "consideration," or payment, and the other party accepts that offer. Contacts can be verbal, in writing or even implied. Some contracts--such as signed credit card receipts--are very simple. Others--such as those used to buy or sell real estate--are far more complicated. If you are entering into a complex transaction, it pays to hire a contract law attorney as early as possible in the process. Your lawyer can help negotiate the terms and conditions of the agreement, then draft the contract or review the contract that has been presented to you. Law firms with experience in contract law can also defend you if you or your company has been accused of breaching a contract, or if you need assistance enforcing a existing contract.
