I'm back... with more questions...


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone...

So after selling my LeMans in February I couldn't handle not having a car in the garage.

I got hold of a friend that's a Mopar guy but had a 67 GTO sitting in his garage that belonged to his late father.

Well long story short... he knew I'm a Pontiac misfit and said his dad would be proud to let me buy his car so...BAM!!!

I now own my dream car...

I almost have it all apart to get it blasted but I can't figure out how to remove this piece of chrome.

Anyone have the trick I need?

Chris - I may defer to Justa on this but I believe there are some Phillips screws underneath the rubber that retain the window felt and the chrome trim. I may be wrong but I suspect that is what is happening.

Have not had mine apart yet to replace, but it should be screws like on the door or nuts on the underside of chrome that would take an extension and come in from below on inside. I'll keep an eye out this weekend at our Pontiac show N swap meet.  The part off the car will tell the story.

You guys were right. A couple screws hiding under the felt. I didn't want to look there because felt looked good but as soon as I pulled it down to get to the screws it tore... on both sides of the car. I'm being a tight ass but I've worked on cars with my dad my whole life...  I know it's gunna cost me money. I don't know what I was thinking...hahahahaha

Thanks again
