1960 Imperial four door sedan - how to take off the rear window without cutting the weatherstrip
|Since this beautyful car had some rust around the rear window, whe had to remove the rear glass. But a weatherstrip was no more available. I was very lucky when Simo from Finland visited me and showed that the weatherstrip could be removed without harm by opening the "lip" along the line You may see in the left picture. I found an old body shop worker who did this already in his life. He also made new the huge clips, which hold down the moldings.
Before we started this we had to find the correct color for this car. The German ICI headquarter was very helpful to make the mixture.
