Any tips on how to trim around non-opening windows

My new 1/4 and rear glass are all custom size now, and don't know how to approach the trimming of them. I would like to be able to replace the glass in case I break one without ripping out the whole interior. I made temporary trim out of wood hoping I could upholster it, but I don't know how to match it up to the side panels.Picture shows the driver's side looking towards rear. Thanks ,Dan

Hemi, it looks pretty good the way it is now. I would think that if you built a wooden frame to go around the window and glued to the vehicle body. Then made a wooden frame that could be finished very smoothly, stained and varnished, with the glass being "captured " by the frame by having it set into an indentation, it would look pretty presentable with some stainless screws holding the glass frame to the wood frame glued to the body around the window. You would have to probably use some type of rubber weatherstripping or some black silicone caulking around the outside contact surface of the window to the frame to prevent rain, wash water, etc from getting into the vehicle.

You could upholster right up to the frame (or under it ) and you could still be able to replace the glass by removing the frame with the captured glass if you ever needed to.

Just a low buck idea.

Thanks for the reply. I scrapped the wooden form in the picture and molded a fibreglass ring for the trim. I would like to paint the trim ring because the doors must be painted in the same area, so this way the rear will match the front. Dan

Build some garnish moldings and have them upholstered to match the interior. Ive built quite a few sets of granish moldings. Im sure you can figure out an easy way to make them, seeing your website. Heres a couple ive made in the past.
