    How does the optional Z21 trim molding attach to the top of the door? What do you do if your adding the molding to a car that originally did not come with it? Pictures would be helpful.

    The factory had little studs welded to the sheet metal along the top edge of the door.Then they had special plastic clips that slipped onto the studs. The stainless steel trim snaps onto the plastic retainer clips.
    If you want to add the trim to a car that doesn't have it, you can have a body shop weld the studs to your car. If you aren't repainting the car, that isn't an option because welding will ruin your paint.
    If the car is already painted, there is a special shouldered screw made that replaces the studs. You can get them from D&R Classic Auto. My old catalog shows them as part number T00237.

    depending upon what you are doing to your car, you could swap out doors (for a set that has the studs for the Z21 trim)
