window trim
As I have been clean the car getting ready to set the interior back in, I notice the wondow trim that (drip cap trim) pieces where broke and not sure what I can do. I figured I can shave them down and adhere them back on. I dont know if it is even work doing now since there is no paint. Also my rear quarter window is leaking and I got my complete weather strip kit today, and wanted to see if anyone had idea to keep that from happening.

Do i need to take the piece off that you still the new weatherstripping in and clean that up. The seal between the weatherstriping rail and body. it looks rough...

I am sure I want that piece back on to help move the rain away from my car windows, but I think I might have to buy a new set once she is painted.

Do those things just slide into place or do you have to remove that rail and screw them in???? I know how man questions can this dam kid ask.
Is it safe to say that the piece under the weatherstrip rails is a black sticky beam, that I shuld be able to take off and redo, correct? Or is it nothing to worry about. I am just worried about the rear window leaking.

If you are going to paint the car wait to put these pieces on until after the car is painted. The drip rail tabs can be repaired (tricky) and they can be "restored" (tedious and time consuming). The drip rails are not reproduced although some have shown the in their catalogs for years. Finding a set that is not beyond repair is difficult, a set that is usable "as is" almost impossible. There are several really good posts here on this subject by Hcode, Qcode351, and myself. Chuck
Okay I will keep them clean and get ready for the long prepping they need

Like chuck said, there's a lot of information on this site concerning replacing the drip rails and repairing the ones you have. I just went through the process using advice from Chuck and others and replaced mine, they came out great. Here's the thread. http://www.7173mustangs.com/thread-quest...r-71-mach1
