Dynacorn M1041 'vert well molding?

'Been fighting the well molding in my '67 while trying to install it with ten new pinch weld clips. 'Having great difficulty in getting the molding over the dual points of the pinch weld clips. Read back through every well molding installation article I could find on Team Camaro. Unfortunately, my current trim is not an original GM.

The Dynacorn M1041 well molding is listed as a GM licensed restoration molding. Has anyone had any experience with it? Is it a better molding being GM licensed, or should I locate an original GM?

Thanks for your help!

Yep, try to find original moldings. eBay is a good place to look.

Yeah original, or reproduction doesn't matter IMHO - You will swear and bleed getting it on with either.
The technique required and the degree of difficulty is more related to the condition and quality of the pinch weld itself if I remember right.
Lots of painters tape to protect paint, tape covered putty knife, three sets of hands, rubber mallet and lots of luck.

What article are you following?

Re: Dynacorn M1041 'vert well molding?

Thank you Camarodude67, Don, Bruce , and Brian for taking your time to respond. I followed all of Bondora68 articles associated with his top work. I also followed all the referrals to other posts. I went back in time to 2011 gleaning any info on this nasty "well molding".

I think that if the clip would "bottom" on the top of the pinch weld, the dual sharp points would have room under them to allow the stainless molding to roll down over the two points. Too many of my clips (two points) literally touched the paint (no room for the well trim to go over the clip points and above the paint). It's tough to learn this with new paint. I thought of using a putty knife to hold the clip higher, but the putty knife is in the way of the well molding slipping over the two points.

I'm going to try a 1/16" or 3/32" shim on top of the pinch weld at each clip to hold them higher, while I try to obtain a GM molding.

I've always tried to use GM moldings as well as clips whenever possible. I have a 67 vert parts car, let me see what condition everything is in, good luck!
