Q: Moulding Removal Help
I have another question. I have a 1968 convertible that I am taking in for a paint job and want to remove the moulding that is around the top on the rear deck but can’t figure out how to get it off. How does one release the clips for this molding. I assume that it is held on with clips of some sort. I looked in the chasis manaul but it was’nt much help. Is a special tool required?
A: He asked about removing the moulding around the top on the rear, There are clips and six screws holding it in place the screws are accesible only after you remove the three rear tacking strips that are bolted to the body, I have not tried but may be possible to fold top back slightly and to use one of those stanley ratcheting screw drivers.
A: The six retaining screws can be removed by folding the top back a bit. The molding has to be removed with the retainig clips still attached. The pinch weld is at a 45 degree angle so the molding must be pulled towards the interior of the car and that angle.
