Removing trim on my 30g

Hi guys.
I have had my 30g tank set up for a while now, and I kind of want to experiment with rimless...
Its an older tank, and the trim isnt glued on anymore, found that out when I moved it in. It would be simple to just pull it up and off, but I'm worried about the lateral force of the water. Has anyone done a diy rimless tank with a 30?

I doubt it really does much on this tank, since its loose anyway, but I would hate to have the tank spring a leak!
Matt

Is there a plastic "brace" across the middle of the tank that would resist bowing out of the glass? If not, the rim is doing nothing but protecting the glass edge.
