View Full Version : rear window moulding pieces
11-10-2003, 01:43:00 PM
year None wants $205 for a complete set of rear window moulding. all i need are the L shaped peices that go over the moulding in the upper corners and they dont sell them seperately. they only come in the complete kit. anybody know of somewhere cheaper or a place that sells only the L shaped connectors? thanx

The only place you can buy them separately is at a bone yard. They are a stainless piece so, if you get them and they are not beat up, you can polish them up as good as new.
There is a fine line between hobby and obsession!

BINGO! for a 72! you have just the L's or the whole thing?

You can still buy them new through GM but...They are expensive.
Go to http://www.gmpartsdirect.com
Expect to pay about $30 each if you want them bad.

Are they stainless??? I thought they were annodised aluminium. Makes a difference if you want to polish them.

I looked in my books and the only place if found them was from Paddock for $48.95 ea.(2004 book), and from Classic for $39 each (1997 book). I would just search the yards. I got a set for $10 bucks

For EVERYONE's info.....The Front and Rear Window "REVEAL" Trim on 70 Plus Camaros was ALUMINUM material that was then "Brite-Dip" Anodized......Once it becomes messed up in whatever way....the only way to fix it is to have anodizing removed with CORRECT acid, then polish trim and have new "Brite-Dip" anodizing reapplied......Depending upon how you use and store car you could just repolish and not Brite -Dip but the Aluminum will retarnish "over time" (???)....The moldings around hood,fenders,doors, and roof line on R/S and Z-21 Style Trim cars are made from STAINLESS STEEL and can much more easily be polished at home or on the car

Just do like I did with my old ones. Get a buffing wheel and go at it.

I'm going to have all 5 pieces powder coated clear and be done with it. I'll never have to polish them again http://www.nastyz28.com/ubb/smile.gif

Said before will say again and agreement with Major Dad. Bufffing wheel on die grinder and a bit of jewlers rouge. Works for stainless and anodized finishes and restores them to a great condition!

how do you get the reveal moulding off
02-15-2004, 01:09:00 PM
Special tool. You slide the tool between the glass and the moulding and then pull the clips inward toward the center of the glass which releases the clips. You could do it with almost any kind of flat, hooked piece of steel, take care not to pry or force the pieces and to not scratch the glass.
