I used my hands to push mine out. had Mary on the outside to catch it, but it was not needed. Once the 3 sides are loose it can be lifted out easily.
Here are the windows with 2 piece mouldings I was able to get.The windows were not tinted so I will switch to my original windows which are tinted.Okay thanks, sounds good--I'll get some.
Philip, what was the paint you used on your window trim again? I thought it looked really good.
Our camera battery charging. I'll post pictures of the stuff I got later maybe this evening.
Philip--What is the best way to get the plastic putty knife started under the trim at the top of the door? It seems the side trim must come off first because it holds the top piece down.Kim the rubber gasket is different for the 2 piece and the chrome trim. The gasket is cut to accept the trim so if you find one with the standard trim take the gasket too. The trim needs to installed in the rubber before installing. The glass, rubber and trim are all assembled and installed back into the body as a unit. Both removal and installation are easy.
I converted mine to 2 piece and I have seen others that painted the full trim. IMO painting the full trim just did not look correct but did not look bad either. There is a 3rd type of trim, it is a painted 2 piece but has a rolled bead on the surface, this was only used on the 75 and 76 SS cars. I have only seen it in photos.
The trim can be removed easily from the door frames without damage. Use a 1" blade plastic putty knife, start at the back top edge of the door work the knife under the trim and slide it towards the front of the door. It lifts the edge without bending it and when about at the curve the whole piece will be able to be lifted off with out any damage or marks. The trim on the 77 was removed and the door frame painted.
Pictures help me a lot. There were times I just did not know how to install, mount or modify what I was working on. I would snap several photos and sit in the house and study them. Usually in a short while an idea would come to mind. It was not always the final way it was done but got the project headed in a positive direction.Okay thanks. I understand better now. Picture really helps!
