How does the after market rear window trim fit?
It fits great! It’s not exactly like OE however.
Really doesn't look that much different. Looks a lot better than I thought it would. Thanks for the picture.
Yeah, you’re really not gonna know unless you compare side by side or just know what you’re looking at.
Badazz, question for you....reading other posts on NOS Trim, was it difficult to install? Any tricks or recommendations? Read that they are very soft and bend when snapping over the retaining clips.
Myself I had a few issues installing my aftermarket trim actually I ended up buying a second set of trim because I was used to old school way by hitting the trim with my fist over the clips. The way I finally got my trim snapped down was by buying the trim removal tool and inserting it on to the clip and then pushing the trim down and it did lock good. The trim tool is not very expensive.
It’s very dependent on what clips you use. Some clips, especially the “correct” clips are very tough. You need the removal tool to pull the clip to engage the trim. Some clips are soft and flexible enough to just push the trim down. Def don’t smack it, palm it, you will risk damaging the trim OE or not.
Got lucky and found a oem set on Ebay last week. Really nice for 50 years old. Shines like new, and very few scratches. I don't think I did to bad $265. + Shipping.
Sure it’s OE? I suspect it’s not by looking at those corner pieces.
It looked weathered on the underside with grit ect. Also had some black vibration type pieces on the underside.
