    Good afternoon everyone,

    Is there a trick to removing the stainless steel trim around the window? I've undone the screw that is in the end of it toward the back but nothing is moving at all. Before I crank on it and break something, are there more screws or are they stubborn clips? I've already removed the rubber and undone the screws that line the top of the door jamb. Thanks in advance for the help.

    @MattfromMaine -- @71Polara383 has done that on Buttercup, my 1972 NYB. You may want to reach out to him. PM me for his contact info.

    If it anything like the three Polaras that I had, just start pulling, there may be some adhesive so start at one end and work slowly.

    If your trim looks anything like this don't go prying on it with a bottle opener. This style just pulls off.

    It looks like the trim in the picture. Very good to know, thank you. I'll get back at it this weekend and hopefully remove the rest of the trim.
