Awesome, I'm surprised...

I was thinking for sure that it would all be epoxied together and entirely unserviceable unless you pulled the whole lens apart.

Any ways, a word of caution for superglue, it will emit a vapor as it dries which can make any residue left over from fingerprints, etc, stand out. I learned this the hard way once.

I'd suggest a very thin layer of clear silicon around the inside of the trim ring. This will work and is easy to pull off later on as well as clean up.
