    Hello, I have the 550 Sedan Bridge 2005. On the side of the bridge it has three tear drop shape glass panels that are nothing but a trim for looks. The color is starting to come off around the edge and I would like to fix it. However, in order to do so I will need to remove them. Does anybody have thoughts around removing them without any gel coat damage? I attached a picture. [​IMG]
    Thank you

    Take this with a grain of salt as I've never worked on that specific thing, but if you're positive there's no access from behind...

    What are those two black dots in the bottom corner? Small screws covered by a plastic cap that may pop off?

    The black glass may simply be held on with adhesive caulk. If so, plastic scrapers may help to pop them off the fiberglass. Heavy fishing line can be used - catch it under one of the edges and pull it back and forth while you pull it underneath the black glass to cut/slice through the caulk.

    I think the black dots are a reflection from the boat next to his.
