I will have to make them out of wood, and my question is: What glue or epoxy or contact adhesive should I use and how would it be applied? Any help you guys can give would be appreciated.
Also.......does this car have a metal trim ring that goes around the rear window? This car has trim rings for the windshield, front and rear windows, but none for the rear window, is this how it was originally?

Thanks again.

Be sure you use a high temp adhesive for the wood and what ever upholstery you apply or you will have sagging problems after the first sit in the sun. 3M makes a spray on adhesive for the upholstery and I would think epoxy for the wood should be good I would back up the epoxy on the wood with screws just to be sure.
Success is getting what you want but happyness is liking what you get.
