Question r/r chrome trim around rear window and on top of bumpers?

92 RMS.
Does the plastic trim around the rear window just pull off like a trim strip, or is actually weatherstripping or part of the window seal?
If it's not integral to the window, what's left if I pulled it off?

Mine is a bit warped, and the chrome (foil under clear plastic like the Caprice door strips?) isn't in good shape either.
If it's not major surgery, I'd like to replace it in some manner, or if it's purely cosmetic, maybe even take it off and leave it off.

The "chrome" strips on top of the bumpers are in sad shape too, though if they can be removed and put back without damage, I could perhaps take them off, sand off the remaining shreds of clear plastic, and paint them body color or black or rubber-strip grey.
How do they come off (and go on)?
