    I don't recall when they stopped drilling into the window trim, but the newer style black mouldings do not get mounted that way. If I recall on my 77,78,80 Z28's, they were I believe shoved up at the pillar end and screwed in at the other end.

    I forgot about these pieces till I saw this thread. Here's a few pics of the ones off my 74. No screw hole in the window trim, only one in the cowl. Both my screw holes are broke, need to figure something out. Don't really want to spend $22 apiece for these but will if I have to :eek:

    Is it safe to assume(think)that these will mount "under" the window trim?

    The short arm gets jammed under the window moulding.

    Yup... The end of the molding has a channel in it... The tab fits into the channel.
    No screw through the molding on the later years.
