1967 Eldorado Rear Window Moldings for slick top car.
« on: November 25, 2017, 01:04:37 PM »
Hi,
IŽm looking for Rear Window Moldings for a 1967 Eldorado with no vinyl roof. These are the painted moldings with a smooth surface.
Would also consider vinyl top moldings with a wrinkled surface as I could make them smooth.

Please let me know if you have anything.

thanks!
Gerald

In case you did no see my response in the general discussion:
Today, I went to my store room. I only have the upper and lower moldings as well as 2 corners. The lower molding is also damaged at both ends by the rust, similar to yours; the upper one and corners are without rust. These moldings were for a roof with vinyl.
If you need pictures, please tell me. The parts are at home now.

Roger,
Thanks for finding the moldings.
Pictures would be very helpful so I could forward them to my bodyshop and ask them if they can work with them.

All the best,
Gerald

Gerald, here are some pictures. The lower molding has severe rust at the ends, on about 210 mm at the RH and 70 mm at the LH end. The upper one is good, there is just one point at the RH end, but it's not rusted through. Both corners are OK.
If you don't get any other offer, maybe some moldings can be cut & weld. It's a delicate job, but can be done.

You are welcome Gerald! By the way, if you are interested by one or two from the 4 pieces I have, no problem. I suppose that I will scrap the long one if you cannot use it.

Thanks Roger. I do have my moldings at home now and will compare them to the ones on a vinyl top car my friend owns.
The body shop said that it would be best to get a full set, but most importantly the corner pieces which are the most corroded parts and he cant fix those.

IŽll get back to you within the next few days!

Thanks!
Gerald
