Default 1929 Tudor Windlace replacement

I've searched but can't find any information on how to remove the trim holding the door hinge pillar windlace. I can't remember how I did this years ago on the model T, but the trim looks familiar. Any assistance, with pictures for the descriptive impaired (me) would be greatly appreciated. Looks like two pieces of trim, the lower with rivets? .......thanks.......

When you open the door, you will see a long metal strip with about 6-7 or so round top rivet heads. These rivets go through the coupe pillar to the inside of the car. You must remove the windsheild garnish moulding, the dash panel and the lower front cowl kick panels. The back of the rivets can be ground off thus you can remove the long strip from the pillar section.

There should be only one trim peice, per side...not two.

Do not forget when you replace the windlace in this area, to add the cardboard strip that should be attached to the windlace itself.

It's been 38 years since I did this, but I seem to remember the L-B kit windlace came with the cardboard strip that Pluck references. It seemed a little daunting at the time, but in hindsight it was one of the easier aspects of installing the upholstery.
