On a 1950, I understand from previous postings that I should tape on both sides of the molding to protect the paint. I should use a flat putty knife to pry off the s/s molding. Does it matter if I insert the putty knife at the top or the bottom of the molding? Thanks

It does not matter top or bottom. Some of the clips may not survive using this method. The only other way that insures that the clips remain intact is to remove the glass and go at the clips from the inside of the door with a pair of needle nose pliers. This way the clips stay in the moulding...it is however, a lot more work this way.
