Q: Windshield Header Molding
Is the top of the front windshield on a 1969 convertible suppose to be chrome or painted a flat silver? (the part where the convertible top rests on). How do these get removed?
A: …Starting in 1968, Federal Safety requirements changed the bright chrome plated Conv. Windshield Header Moldings to a ‘dull’ finish on half of the molding. (the side facing the driver). This was to cut down on sun glare. Some say the finish is a bead blasted, brushed finish. Others say it’s a silver spray on finish. I have NOS moldings that have a sprayed on dull finish. The repros available are all chrome plated; no dull finish. The moldings are held on by trim screws.
