Larry the APE man calles the chrome strip on the insdie and outside of the doors on our coupes "door toppers."
On a 105 coupe there is a horizontal piece of chrome trim at the top/outside of the door that holds the felt window wipe in place. At the bottom edge of that piece of trim there is a black piece of plastic trim. It is long and narrow and it lays on the bottom edge the chrome next to the paint. I know y'all know what I am talkin about. Where can I find a couple of those do-dahs?
That do-dad is pretty much unobtanium. The factory trim has a very low outer profile and a taller inside profile. I think you many need to settle for the lowest profile U-channel rubber edge trim that you can find. It's not uncommon to see restored GTVs with this generic edge trim.
Just to be sure for my sake, is that the piece that looks like it is crimped every so often along the inside of the chrome trim piece?
Yes, Highwood's 6181 appears to be the correct trim that is run on the lower edging of the chrome trim along the door and rear quarter windows. But it is not crimped. It's just held in place by the chrome trim itself when the trim is screwed to the body. And I believe it was only used on later GTVs (2000 for sure, maybe 1750).
I checked Highwoodalfa again. They definitely have it. I also found the length I bought a while ago.
I'm looking at the Highwood site and I will be dammed if I can figure out how to search for a part # of place an order. I'm really not puter illiterate. FWIW I found it but, this is not an easy site to navigate, eh.
