I was able to remove the inner skin around mine once I drilled out all the rivets without removing the door trim. There maybe a hidden rivet or two that can be taken care of with a sharp wood chisel.

Assuming that a 74 is the same as a 72, yes the trim pops off. It's a "T" shaped trim where the stem of the T goes into a slot in the door frame. It's held in place with clips, some of which will come out with the trim and some will remain in the slot. To re-install, place the clip on the trim before gently banging it back into the slot in the door frame. If memory serves, I used a small pry bar to remove ours.
