Quarter glass moulding help
#1
So I felt into the trap of while doing this I should do that. All started that I wanted to add power locks to my car. To add the wires through the door I needed to remove the doors to add the belows. Since I am removing the doors I may as well replace the hinges. Since I am removing the door panels may as well add speakers. I had old seals so I may as well replace the door and roof seals. Since I have to remove the quarter glass to replace the roof seal I may as well modify the quarter windows so they can be rolled. 

In any case, that's where I am stuck. I have all the winding mechanism and rails in. While replacing the quarter glass vertical seal and installing the glass, the moulding came off. Now I have the glass in place but I can't get the moulding in. The plastic insert in the moulding's groove is braking and not letting me wedge the glass into it (see picture). Every time I remove the broken pieces and try again, more breaks. What are my options? Get new moulding? Do they sell the plastic insert or can I make something up? It doesn't need to be concours. Thank you.

Tony if I remember correctly it is called setting rubber
I don't think it is available for our cars but it is for early corvettes
Sorry it have been a long time since I needed any 
Just thinking... actually NPD may have it or they had it

LOL, The snowball affect took over again. BTW I bet you could use new roof rail seals and polish the roof rails, lol. Just kidding. It is difficult to set a stopping place.


When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??

I got lucky, my trim pieces didn’t come off when I converted my 1/4 windows to roll down. Wish I could help you out. I don’t know how they attach to the window.
I was able to stop the while I’m at it....for now, lol. I still need to redo the roof rail seals too.

Don at OMS is correct. It is called setting rubber. If NPD doesn't have it do a web search for " glass setting rubber channel". Find the size closes to the channel width and glass thickness. DK Hardware has a wide selection.

There are two items in NPD that may be what I am looking for, but I am not sure since the description is not clear to me. What are these for?

+1 - That will work for you.  Does the same job as the pre-molded rubber channel.
