front and rear window trim 68 Camaro

Has anyone out there thought of an alternative to the window trim on a 68 camaro. I have none at the moment and it is quite expensive to replace. Also not crazy over how it fits!! Can something else be used or fabricated?

Almost anything can be fabricated . If you don't have the tools to do it with or know some one who has, you're in trouble. I ended up buying a 65 El Camino to get the trim for my front and back glass, kept everything I could ever use, still have it too, and threw the body to the dumpster gods. [came from New Jersey] gave $450 for it and it was worth every penny.

You could flush fit the glass and seal it in the way they do with modern cars, if you like that look.

It is a lot of work ($$$) to the window opening to raise the glass and shrink the qpening down very close to the size of the glass, but it has been done. Some of the fancy magazine star "Pro Touring" cars are like this. Like Foose, Etc.

Repro trim and new clips seems like the best way to me, not that expensive.
