    Rocker Molding Trim Question??

    Hello,

    Does anything get placed in between the metal rocker trim and the car body? It seems odd to screw metal trim directly on the body with no protective barrier?

    Thanks!

    Unfortunately, that’s the way it is

    I thought the rocker deco has a rubber trim piece (goes all the way around the perimeter on the T trim), same as the front and rear deco trim: 999-911-198-40

    You can see it on the PET for LWBs, and on the '700 mile S' trim, top: https://www.flickr.com/photos/807244...7630169538658/

    Originally the trim had small thin rectangular rubber pieces at the bottom screws .

    For (non-S) short wheelbase cars, there’s Deco beeding that goes around the outer edge and seals against the paint. The original had a thin profile, which is available at international Mercantile. There’s been a bad batch circulating around from a supplier who got it wrong, IM was able to correct it, and has the right stuff. The incorrect profile will not fit into the groove at the back of the deco.

    Eric will know for sure, but did the 67 S not use any beading on the rocker deco?

    Thank you for all the help. I was fairly certain my car had no beading based on how my trim looked when I took it off and the PET, but it helps double check. Appreciate the speedy replies!

    I'm referring to the later S trim # 25 in the parts schematic .
