What's the best way to remove the chrome trim from the windshield and rear window gasket on an EM.

Thanks,
Kirk

Probably the only way is to cut the rubber gasket

Depending on why you want to remove it and what for--either remove the windshield or cut the rubber.

Not sure what you're doing/trying to do, but to remove the trim you have to either cut the rubber or remove the glass first, like has been said. To put the trim back ON (like if you wanted to remove it to buff or polish) then it goes onto the rubber before the glass puts back into the opening. You can't put the trim back in with the glass still installed.

If you want to take it out completely because you don't like the look of chrome or stainless around your window, then the best solution would be to use 500 rubber since they didn't come with the trim from the factory. Only I'm not sure if Clark's is repro-ing the 500 rubber or not, I think they were working on it at one time...
