Re: Quarter window chrome trim.
Well the pinched tighter chrome strips did seem to grip better and I thought they were on there for good. So I tried to slide up the window seal and it absolutely would not go. The slots on the rubber pieces were not aligned side-to-side and too thick in the area they slide into the chrome piece.
I ordered a pair of Metro branded rubber seals, with metal insert, and they look much better quality. Using dish washing liquid as the lubricant I was successful in sliding one up to within an inch of the top when it stopped. I pushed so hard I moved the chrome piece off of the glass. So now I will have to destroy the chrome piece to get the rubber seal off.
Who makes the best chrome strips? These came as a set from NPD and I can use none of it.
Also, to address the glass thickness mentioned above. This reproduction glass measures .187" thick. The GM glass in my Camaro measures .202" thick. That .015 difference in thickness could make a difference in how well the rubber grips.
