Unfortunately Google Cloud Platform does not have the rebuild button. As I understand you don't want to loose your external IP address. I recommend you to reserve the ephemeral IP address of your actual instance, create a new one with a screenshot and then assign the reserved IP address.

Here are the steps:

  1. Go to the External IP addresses page in the GCP Console. In the Type column, change the address type to Static for the IP address you want to promote. Provide a name for the new static IP address and click Reserve.
  2. Stop the old instance.
  3. Create a new instance with the snapshot and select the reserved IP address.
