How do you remove the roof trim strip

The metal strip between the roof and the door edge. It runs the length of the roof, front windshield to rear glass, thin about 3/4 inch wide. One on each side of the car, how does it come off????

that strip looks very lame on my black prelude, I tried to paint it with black OEM paint and the paint came off after a month or so, I guess the chrome is too shinny and makes it very hard for the paint to stick to it or could be I was not that good in prepare it for painting, so now I have 2 black vinyl strips on top of it and the vinyl had been on there for the last year or so. I will get the whole car painted next year so I am happy with the vinyl on there for now...

mine is body colored weird


i'm gonna take a wild guess and say take a small flat head screwdriver and VERY gently pry up one end, near either the front or rear windshield, until you can grasp it firmly in your hand and pull it straight up.
knowing honda, its only held on there with clips that you push down on and they clip into place

mine looks like brand new white paint, compared to the rest of my car.

on my moms jetta it kept popping off at one end, and u could just push it back in, so maybe if u just get it started out the rest will just pull out. not sure though
