Probably harder to find for fastback and convertible, not aware that it's reproduced. Maybe directly from a glazier producing the windows?

You can repolish the stainless on yours, but the lower frames are prone to rusting. They have started to reproduce the frames in the last few years, but having replaced just the glass in mine in the past, it's worth every penny to buy a new one completely. It's a big job to remove the glass, clean out the channels, repolish all the stainless, then get the glass to actually seat completely in the frame with no gaps. Check out Auto City Classics in MN. They will even etch the Carlite logo and date code the glass for you if you like. Otherwise, there are sources for just the frames, including CJs.

I'm pretty sure that molding/trim is stainless. How would it be shot?
It’s slightly surface rusted and it is also pitted. I’ll post so pics of mine when I get home

I replaced the driver side lower portion of my '66, and the part fit well.
The original was rusted too much to justify using again.
Polishing the stainless was easy.
