Just to add my two cents. Several years ago I removed all of my portlight frames to reseal them. I removed each port light and all of the fasteners - actually removed the bolts. I didn't just take the nuts off. Then I laid a piece of 2x4 across the opening and used a maul to drive each frame out. I didn't have any problem with delaminating, perhaps because they had never been removed before and 5200 was not used originally. Which raises another point, perhaps you do not want to use 5200 when you put the frames back in - just in case you might want to remove them again some time in the future. Using a maul you can beat or tap as your heart desires. Just be patient and careful.
