How to remove the Chrome trim - Windshield

I have some rust at the top of my windshield (1995 E420)

Would like to remove the trim piece, and look closer, and while in clean and paint with POR-15

When I remove the trim - will it go back on again, or will I be required to buy new trim?

Thoughts and comments on my approach are appreciated. The rest of the car looks great.

1 - remove trim
2 - Leave windshield in
3 - carefully clean rust out (small grinding wheel & small wire brush)
4 - clean with POR-15 cleaner products
5 - Apply POR-15
6 - paint with touch-up paint
7 - Pray the rust doesn't spread

My goal - stop the rust before I have a hole through the roof, and defer the thousand dollar paint job for later. (priced full car - $3,000)

Thanks for the help
