Well I finally located a nice front fender side(belt line) trim molding to replace the beat up one on the passenger side of our 64 Convertible.
Question is:: how do I remove the existing trim piece from the rear of the wheel well to the front edge of the door. I assume the fasteners are original- but?
Are these attached to spring clips, if so do I get to them from under OR over the trim. Are there nuts on the other side? etc.
The shop manual that I have on page 16-82 shows typical attachment methods, but I do not see which one(s) apply to the 6267 body style.
Like to get a good idea before scratching the fender paint etc.
PS: Jason you can take my name off your wait list for this trim piece.
Are there more of THAT style going forward to the wheel opening to?
I already bought a full set of fasteners from you to do all the exterior trim.
There are T shaped stainless fasteners that slide into the lower side trim groove at the wheel well opening to the front. (see picture below). A 5/16" hex head screw goes thru from the bottom into flat speed nuts above. The stainless T shaped fasteners hold up very well and have found when customers need them it is usually because they have simply been lost and not because of condition. I am out of these but can put you on my Wait List if you need them. The fastener in the picture above is what I sell as part of the lower side trim set so you should have what you need for the front fender rear section. You just need to remove the two 5/16" hex head screws that hold the door hinge cover on to access inside the rear of the fender.
That's what I needed to know. I have more than enough of those T shaped fasteners. Once I get both fender trim strips replaced, I can offer the extras for someone who needs them
I needed to know what held on the trim from the rear of the wheel opening to the front edge of the door.
