Default windshield and rear window upper molding

Anyone got a source for the plastic molding along the roof edge of the windshield and rear glass? The ones on my car are cracking and kinda ratty. I'd like to replace them if I can find a source. Perhaps I should just get to a body shop supply house and bring one with me. hmmm

Thanks for the part number. Pretty much every online GM parts dealer wants anywhere from $13-22 for the part and then another $12-16 to ship. LOL

Shipping will not be coming down until there is some reasonable belief that fuel prices will come down and stay down. Many state legislatures are looking at lower fuel prices as an excuse to raise taxes on fuel.

I believe you have to remove the glass to install the O.E. reveal molding.
The front molding has a flat wire in it.

I just looked up part numbers, not how to install it, no idea as to what kind of a greased pig contest installation might be.

My 92 SL1 rear window has the hard plastic trim. It has rotted away. I asked a glass company , and they said it only comes with the glass. Maybe they were just trying to sell me a new glass?

Default Re: windshield and rear window upper molding

My guess is that it fits over the edge of the glass. Might be possible to buy the piece and modify it so that it may be mounted using a high end polly sealant/adhesive, something such as POR-patch from POR-15. A quick trip to the JY to look at a broke one on any 91-94 should provide that answer and suggest a replacement method.

Think I might just order something closely resembling it from JC Whitney or other outfit. Then I'll seal the top with my usual roof flashing goo and apply the molding. As long as it doesn't leak and is more aesthetically pleasing than the cracked/broken original piece, I'm happy.

I noticed mine are looking a bit rough, too, although not cracked (yet!). Has anyone had any luck using this stuff:

Also, if you get a new windshield, do they replace the molding or only (try to) reuse the old ones?

Maybe an auto glass place would be a good supply source...

The Back To Black probably works fine. The window trim is a different issue.

It works great on trim that has greyed out from UV exposure. It won't do anything for cracked/rotten plastic that's far gone.

The 2015 BTB glass tools catalog arrived today. Some of these moldings might be handy for glass already on the car. T110 looks like it could work for the rear glass:

Agreed. That looks ideal. Seems to only be sold in rolls of 75'. Anyone else need some and want to throw in together?

For length purposes:
I have a new 21170089 '96-'02 (rear window) and it is 52.5-inches long as measured with it laying along a straight-edge.
I'm not sure about stretch during installation. There is no wire in 21170089.

For clarity...my goal would be to simply yank out the existing molding and install new molding (not the glass) only with the help of a little adhesive.
