Besides, what do you "pry" it off with...a flat head screw driver? I can just see that slipping and scratching the heck out of the door which somehow avoided damage. The potential for my making things worse is way too large given the relatively small payback!

I'd probably mask off the paint to keep from scratching it and, depending on how tightly the trim is fastened, put something under a door trim removal tool http://autoplicity.com/products/2546815-dorman_49050_door_tr... to spread the pressure of the pry.

driving the car the two miles to the autobody guy and forking over the very affordable $267, is not worth distracting me from other projects.

Good point!
