quarter window vertical molding issue

Hi guys

Always had issue with my quarter window vertical molding and I didn't really care until it almost fell off the window today. The molding I assume should not be curved like mine is? If the bend isn't supposed to be there do u guys know anyone that sells them each and not as a pair?

Sorry the dragging and dropping photos wasnt working for Chrome so here are imgur links.

Re: quarter window vertical molding issue

Yes, they should have a bend to them to match the contour of the glass. What issue are you having besides it falling off ? There should be an internal rubber insert to help hold the molding on the glass. I think some adhesive should be used as well.

Thanks for the reply, I do have the insert but when I align the vertical part of the molding to the glass the bottom curved part of the molding doesn't align to the window, Ill get a pic posted of what im talking about.

That's normal, the bottom of the molding overhangs the glass. It's hidden when assembled. Probably was made that way to aid in removal if/when needed ?

Here is a picture of my 67's with the original chrome before I changed them. Note the overhang on the bottom.

Re: quarter window vertical molding issue

Doubtful you will find a single one and not a pair. Why inventory 3 part numbers, it doesn't make good business sense. Metro is one of the better quality parts out there.
