Unhappy Quarter Window Molding Help!!!

Ok so like everyone else I'm assuming my quarter window molding is turning to crap. So I wanna replace them. Easy enough one would think. I was wrong. Anyone have a site or know how to replace it without breaking the window. Advice please

From what I know, you can't replace just the molding. you must replace the window also because they are one. Which if you ask me is just dumb, but anyway. here is another option to try first maybe; note: I have NOT seen how these look in person. My opinion is that they will look mediocre at best, but what do I know.

Or you can replace the whole thing at:

Hope that answers your question. Good Luck!

Cheap is always good. Have you heard of any1 sanding it down before you glue on the new piece over the old piece? I cant see just gluing the new piece on and it looking good???

no i haven't. I'm in the same agreement with you. I don't know about just glueing the new one on. I guess you could check it out first with some double sided tape to see how it looked and decide if you wanted to sand it down. I need to do this restore as well and am trying to rationalize spending 300 on a new set of windows; however I'm not one to do something half-way. a bit of a pickle. I'll cross that bridge when I get to it though. let me know how it works out for you if you decide to go that route.

As soon as I get the extra cash I'm sending my extra set to Dugan Racing to get refurbished. A little expensive but they will look new. http://www.dugan-racing.com/html/featured_products.htm

I sanded mine down and painted them the same time I painted the car. Looks fine

One more for sanding and painting. Use filler/high build primer and they will look good as if not better than new.

Heres a couple of mine. I use duplicolor engine enamel and they look great. All my trim is done with the stuff and I never have to worry about fading.
