Early 80's rear bumper rubber R & R. 200 1980

Howdy, hope to find everyone doing well.

I have a new to me 1980 240.
The rear bumper rubber seems to have gunk under some of its lip. In those areas with this buildup underneath, it causes the edge (lip) to not lay flat. First thing odd is that gunk was able to get under that lip. The rubber seems to run on and be held on by metal rails?
Are the rubber sections removable?
Do they slide on & off?
Should I wait until summer when the rubber is more pliable? Is it possible to just clean gunk out of an area and the lip will squeeze back into its original location?

Thanks in advance.

Joseph in snowy & freezing New Mexico.
