    All I can say is "WOW"!!! Anytime you'd consider it, I'd fly you over here to do the bodywork/paint on my nephews 51 Chevrolet Business Coupe. Do you have any "neighbor" type problems; it looks like you're surrounded by apts/condos. Keep on posting. Butch/56sedandelivery.

    Hello friends, today I need your help.

    I installed the windshield with stainless steel trim, but something did not convince me.

    I removed the windshield and still not get it to go well.

    I'm installing the windshield but I have problems to enter the stainless steel trim
    Please can someone help me understand how to properly install this molding?

    I ran all the information you find on the web but the gasket does not fit well.
    Here in my city there is no one able to do this job.

    Please, please, please, help me :)!!!

    Any help is appreciated

    Many many thanks <!-- / message -->

    This is probably the cleanest build I've ever seen. I thought it was nice to start with but it is going to be sweet.

    Hi Steve, I did not know Chevytalk, I do a search later, thanks.

    These are photos of the trim (are dirty but new), the back part that is inserted into the rubber.

    Hello to all,

    waiting to see how to install the windshield, now I have dedicated
    the realization of a gas tank cover. I used wood from 5/16 thickness.

    The work is not finished yet but I like

  27. Why not bring the wood over all the way up. That way you can hide it and that sound deadener.

    That stainless windshield trim can be a pain , you have to trim the reproductions to get it to fit . You are installing it in the rubber before mounting the glass right ? They look nice with stainless around all the glass though . Nice truck !

    Many thanks 38zephyr, I really like these trim and I have to find a way to install them. I installed them after installing the glass....maybe I'm wrong?


    Many thanks

    Hi Tony, I think I put the wood to close round but I want to get a small space for some objects. Many thanks.
