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.
