Wood paneling

Got some wood paneling in a home I'm looking to purchase. There is a piece of trim where the 2 panels are joined all throughout. Cam I remove that trim and fix the gap so I can paint? How would you suggest doing this?

You could remove it and caulk the gap between panels. I would not fill it with joint compound as that would be prone to crack. IMO it would be best to leave it as is and just prime and paint.

When I see those I'm reminded of the 80s! Caulking will be a good step in this I believe.
