    I’m wondering if there’s a trick or if it’s even worth trying to remove rusted trim from a perfect backglass. The game is a 72 Fireball and it’s the only eyesore about the game. The trim is really on there. I can just see the art coming off the glass if I get busy with it.
    Any ideas?

    Thoroughly mask off the glass, remove/strip as much of the rust as possible. Prep and use an appropriate metal paint on the trim while still on the glass.

    Good luck.
