I don't know if this will work but heating the mould up and using fishing line between the body and the mould as a saw to break the bond. If this works there will be less stress on the panels than prying at it.

i use a razor blade , the type that you snap of and it slide back into its self , btw are you planning on re-use'n the moulds cause if you take them off and the mould bends the chrome is wrecked then . unless your putting new moulds on then if thats the case then use a paint scrapper between the mould and panel ( be gentle here not to scratch paint )
Once the mould has lifted you should be able to grab it with both hands and pull them off .

The chrome is f**k anyway. Was just gonna paint the grey part body colour and the chrome part remove n paint another colour. i dont know yet, will depend on how good/bad it looks without the side mould.
