    Fellow HAMBers -
    Looking to see what this trim piece is called. I know they are a PITA to find, but am having trouble in my searches finding one. It's the piece that buts up to the back of the rear window, like just in front of where a sail panel would be on a four door.

    Here is the one I got back when I bought the car...was only given one :mad:

    Any help is appreciated.

    If it is that piece, maybe it's a "C-pillar garnish molding" or a "Quarter window exterior garnish molding." I suppose a body or parts manual for '53-4 Chevy would have its name in GMlish. Whatever you call it its gonna need some 'splaining of where it goes when you're out trolling around for it. Good luck in your search!
