Yes, you can remove the trim. The tool looks like a realy wide set of pliars. You wrap the jaws in a shop rag, hook it onto the lower edge of the molding and GENTLY pry the trim off the rail a little bit at a time. Even with the tool it is a ******. Most of the tops we did were for used car dealers and body shops. To keep from messing with the rail trim we would glue and fit the top up to the back of the drip rail then trim the vinyl just a bit short and then 1/2 fill the rain gutter with a matching color or clear silicone sealer. This seals the edge of the top and keeps the edge hidden.
