Revolution-Drill out rivets to replace the Windshield?

Having a new windshield installed in my 2007 Revolution LE and concerned about the painted trim pieces covering the sides of the windshield.

Does anyone with a similar coach know if these trim pieces are riveted in place? It looks like American Coach was still using the same style up until 2018.

Be sure the company doing the installation is familiar with MHs and ACs in particular. As I was once told, "putting in a new windshield is major surgery."

The side post trim on my '04 was held on with screws with an adhesive strip behind it to stabilize. Not a big deal to get off.
