The headliner has been installed in my '69 Firebird and I am getting ready to install the side molding/lace for the front and rear windshields and the sides. I bought the car in pieces ans the body was disasembled, so I have no idea how the trim goes on. It looks like the front is pretty straight forward. The sides look like there could be 2 different ways that it can go in (appears to have a cushion on one side, so not sure if this faces the interior, or the side window. The rear windshield looks like one continuous piece. All parts are OER.

If your trim is like the 67, the flat side goes to the inside. The cushion side to the outside and fills the void between the pinch weld and weather strip.

I was just about to ask the same question about the headliner windlace that goes above the side windows when I saw this post.

"Does the flat side of the windlace face the inside of the car or the outside of the car?"

Mine were removed long ago and never marked. I already had mine installed with the flat side facing out. I thought it made sense that the flat side would mate to the flat side of the stainless steel weather strip channel. But after seeing the following, I said wait a minute.

Mine is a '68 Camaro and you were discussing a Firebird here. I would have to believe they're all the same but want to be sure before I turn mine around.

Thanks.....Dave

Dave, like I said above, the flat side goes to the inside of the car. That is if they are the same as a 67.

OK, thank you. I just wanted to be sure.

By the way, does anyone know if a good reproduction of that windlace is being made. I can get by with my originals if I have to but they do have a few flaws.
