Went to pick the 66 coupe up from the paint shop and I decided to take the new drip rail moldings along with me so a professional could install them. Wrong answer, we tried for ever and chipped the paint on the rail all to crap. We used a molding tool and a rubber hammer but no luck. They seemed to be long and weren't wide enough at the ends. Anybody have any suggestions on installation? Please help before I ruin another set. Thanks. ::

Yeah I had problems with the same brand. The passanger side when on pretty good except for the front edge- it looks like it wants to pop off. The drivers side, however, is another story. Horrible fit. Its all mangled and stuff. I hear the best solution is to find good originals. =(

Bent mine all to crap trying to remove them for the painting on my 66. Have just about decided NOT to put any back on...heyheyehye... :p maybe one of these days, when I really feel like messing up my new paint job and doing some major league cussing! :eek:

Find some nice originals and polish them up. Then put wax on the car's drip rail and then install. Wax acts as a lubricant and a rust preventative in case of a chip.

I've used them and your right they are a terrible fit. The second time that I used them I anticipated having a fit problem and long before painted the car I shaved the width of the drip rail down just so they would fit. G
