I'm getting my Falcon ready for the paint shop and would like to remove the stainless trim around the windshield and back window.Is there a way to get it off without ruining it? Maybe a special tool or something?Thanks.

The front trim is shaped like a "T' if you look at the profile. It isn't hard just start in one of the corners and work it all the way down that piece. The trim actually spreads the seal out to make it grab the pinch weld and the window. If you need a picture just let me know and I'll take a picture of the trim. Its really not that hard just time consuming when you wanna save the trim.
