Hi guys, my 38 coupe was a former street rod and came to me disassembled. The window garnish mouldings are all stainless steel,they all fit nicely except the ones for the doors. when i try to install them there is a gap at the top of the door of about 1/2 inch. could these mouldings be from another year/division of gm? any suggestions would be appreciated.Thanks.
post a picture and I can tell you if they are correct for the coupe. They did not go to the top of the doors as there was upholstery that goes around the perimeter of the mouldings.

re 38 coupe garnish mouldings
Thanks for the info,i'll try to take some detailed pics and post them. Would windlace be the right thing to fill the gap?

Windlace was originally attatched to the door jamb. Thin panel stock same as that used for door panels was used up and around the door above the garnish moulding and covered with upholstery. This was the original way it was done. You may be able to reinvent the wheel though and do it however you like.
