Yes you can remove it. It'* held on by adhesive, just some careful prying and patience will get it out. Heat will help a lot also. However simply removing it will look sub-par. You could custom fill the gap with something then paint it (I've never seen it done, just an idea, someone'* gotta try everything once). You can buy material that is like a wide pinstripe and with some careful trimming you could apply that over the chrome moulding. Either black, body, or accent color would all work. You can do the same for the trim over the doors. Goodluck!
