Powder Coated Powerbook…

Well the whole powder coating of the Powerbook has been put on hold for the time being. I was able to remove the top of the case(where the keyboard is attached) … But upon doing so I noticed that the plastic bezel around the case is tacked to the metal in about 2 dozen spots. I am a little worried about removing it as who knows if I will break it or be able to get it back on. So if anyone has any ideas please let me know.
