Don’t know, never DIYed a windshield. But when I’ve had several  
replaced with OEM glass at local glass shops they told me that they  
had to order the trim as a seperate part. Glass shops will never try  
to remove glass in one piece to save it of trim, they just break it  
out. But it can be done with a tight wire cutter.
