Tail Lens Trim Empty

Does anyone know if the chrome trim can be removed from the lens assembly.?????
I would like to remove mine sometime and send the plastic chrome out for re-chroming. There are places that will re-plate the plastic chrome.

i was unable to remove the chrome trim from my lens. i pulled off all the tabs (must have been 30 of them) then came to the conclusion the trim was glued to the chrome and would crack apart if i tried to remove it. it really sucks too because my old tail light had perfect chrome, while the replacement looks like shit. (accident a year ago put a small crack in the tail light)

Well that sucks. I wanted to send mine out this winter for re-chrome since none of the used ones that I have seen are any better than what i have.
