Hi Dave. you have a few choices on how to proceed with this. one way will be to tape this trim off, put a good drop cloth underneath it and then strip it off in place. Finally, sand it lightly with a 600 garnet paper, and then spray paint it stainless.
Another method would be to go to a sheet metal shop nearby and have them fabricate a piece of stainless trim for you, predrilled which you can simply add over the existing trim with some stainless steel screws. -this would be my choice.
Thanks for choosing Fixya!

Hello dave, this might not be the exact advice you are requesting but simply i would say there are other ways you can turn the trim to silver apart from how you are planning to go about it. Simply put there is no way you can take off the black paint completely even if you get the trim removed as you will only end up opening up the unit and disfigure the beauty of the unit.
Instead just get a professional painter and they could cover the other segments except the trim of the hood and do some light painting to give you the silver you want. Although you could try doing it yourself all you have to do is get some plain paper and masking tape and cover the part you dont want painted get a can of silver spray and spray lightly till the trim becomes silver to your satisfaction.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

please find above & below, an exploded parts diagram, this may assist you to do what you want?
above is a copy of your owners manual, again this may help.. can't hurt anyway to have a copy?
To strip the coating off, any commercial grade paint stripper should be OK, make sure that you wash the surface thoroughly, to remove any trace of the stripper.
If cost isn't too much of an issue, there is no reason why one couldn't remove the "Trim", and go to a stainless steel sheet metal workshop, and ask them to make a "Copy" the cost wouldn't be too great and the results would be well worth it.

The trim plate or trim piece is held by part number 38 the slider.The trim plate is just fitted from one side,the other side is just stuck hard,you can say like welded.But its easy to remove,just loosen it from one side and give bit **** from other side and it will be loose.In the inner side of trim plate there
are few clips that held it tight.But this clips are very delicate,if this clips are not there,then also trim will fit properly.---------
You will just have to slide the trim plate from part number 39 and it will be loose.
See fig for slider, part number 39:---
see fig for trim plate:--
The switch is just held by screws and jumper wire,plug in connectors.This are just pull out connecting wires.And easy to re fit.-----------
Check out keep updated.Thanks/.Helpmech.
