That's what I've always been told as well. So I would add to Andrew's list of steps:Did you put the glass in with the window trim installed or install it later? I've always inexpertly assumed that putting the gasket in and then installing the trim isn't advisable because of the possibility of bent, unobtanium trim.
4.5 Reinstall trim into gasket
5. Put new gasket & cleaned-up trim on glass.....
After fitting the gasket to the glass but before installing that assembly into the car's body? In other words, swapping steps 4.5 and 5 above? Yes, that I can believe. But once the glass + gasket are installed into the car, the groove that accepts the trim would be tough to open up enough to force the trim in.180OUT said:Scott moves to town with his Italian restored Jr. and his shop had installed the trim after fitting the gasket . . .
