Any Tricks to Install Roof Drip Rail Molding, and Connect to Boomerang Mldg?

Recommended Posts

 I've got no idea what i did with the oem moldings twenty years ago, so I bought a set of new moldings. And I'd really hate to bend them installing them wrong. I am familiar with the thread on removing it with that cool tool, but have no info on the install. So what's the trick fellas?

EDIT:

After searching my mostly useless assembly manual, I have more questions than before. How in the world are the drip rail molding and boomerang molding connected? The book is of no help to me. Is this connection pretty critical or can the two moldings be off a bit and hidden by the angled connector?

That joint has to be put on by hand ,it just slips over the quarter window trim and the drip rail ,dont even use a rubber hammer because that will dent it also .

The tool i made for installing tbe roof rail trim worked great but i must have sent it to someone ,i get some time i will make a few ,they were easy to make

Ok, now for the $64,000 question: does the drip molding/ elbow connector/ dog leg - boomerang molding need to be installed before the quarter glass? It looks to me the connector elbow needs to be mounted under the glass molding. Without markings, how do I tell which elbow connector is left and right?

You can tell by the angle. It's  kinda like  the  difference between  your  left and right  shoes,  you just have to look at them :)

But what if you have two left feet, like I do?

In absolute agreement here in regards to "being the best". I used his plans in building my rotisserie and I thank him every time I load the rotisserie mounted car onto a trailer for transportation. It's secure and it ain't tipping over. Thank you, Jimmy!!!
