Any suggestions on what I should do to take the lens off in order to access the trim piece?

Distasteful yes, functional yes, please don't paint them black, theres a reason theyre silver and reflective. I'm talking about the reflective bowls, sorry for the confusion.
Theres tons of DIYS for removing the lens
SEARCH angel eyes and theres tons of headlight removals.
