1969 Camaro Roof Drip Molding Help

Hey guys,

Last week at Carlisle I purchased a set of new Roof Drip Moldings for my 69 Camaro. Only thing is that I don't know the proper way to install them. What sequence do I install them? Do I push up or down when I install them? Is there a way not to scratch the paint. Anything you can give me is appreciated. Thanks

the trim hooks onto the top first then the bottom rolls in and snaps in place. You need to do this a little at a time working your way from one end to the other. A light slap with the palm of your hand should be all the force needed. Install the A pillar mouldings first, then the top moulding. Set the moulding against the drip rail and verify where it needs to be before you start snapping it in place. If the moulding is too far rearwards it will hang lower than it should so check where it needs to be before you snap it in place. The last piece to install is the small corner trim in the front and this needs to be crimped on carefully. If you find the piece was installed wrong the removal isn't a big deal, carefully pull the bottom outwards at one end and work the top edge off of the drip rail working your way from one end to the other. A thin coating of vasaline or grease can help the moulding install and also keeps paint damage to a minimum. If the bodyman didn't keep his primer buildup down and ended up with a thick buildup on the drip rail this can cause install problems and the only way to cure is to sand some material off. Bob
