Just a trim please

2012.12.06 - El Camino (5)We made good progress on the El Camino today. Excepting the interior, which I won’t be doing, the car is very nearly complete.

Today was all about installing the glass and trim. In the first photo you can see the windshield is installed and I am installing the lower molding. In the second photo the remainder of the trim is install and the windshield is complete.

In picture three the rear glass and all it’s trim is installed. I don’t do glass work anymore … and after watching the glass guy work on this car for four hours, I am reminded why I don’t do glass work any more.

In the fourth photo the tail-gate and rear section of the car has it’s moldings installed.

In the fifth and final photo you can see the rest of the bed trim, with the exception of the front piece, is installed. We didn’t have clips for the front piece so we are going to have to track those down before that can be installed. Also in the fifth photo Chris is installing the rear bumper brackets so the bumper can be installed.

We still have the front bed trim piece, along with a few trim pieces on the hood to install, but the bulk of the trim is on the car. And I’m glad it’s done. I have been dreading it for a while now because installing all 427,362 trim clips is time consuming and tedious.

OK, maybe it wasn’t really 427,362 clips … but it sure felt like that many.

  1. All that glass and trim looks a lot better where it is now than it ever did piled at my house!
