Don't take this wrong Denise, but your questions and statements don't quite make sense.
The front trim piece IS that rounded strip that runs along the width of the car at the leading edge of the T-Top section.
That is help down by several rivets. I take it that you have this piece removed already.
Underneath that is the actual T-Top frame assembly. You don't really want to go removing this, it's a long procedure to drill all the rivets holding the T-Top frame in place, plus you really need frame spreaders to hold the car apart while this frame is removed.
The A pillar panel - thats the body panel around the windshield thats painted body color is sandwiched under the T-Top frame. To remove this you need to remove the T-Top frame first.
If you are trying to pull this panel, I'd recommend leaving it be and having it painted on the car, unless there is major unrepairable damage to that panel.
Any way you can get pics of what you want to remove?, pics are worth a thousand words
