Door top mouldings - Am I missing a piece here?

Recommended Posts

Is there supposed to be a piece, some sort of end cap, on the rear edge of the door moulding strips?  Thanks!

I suspect you have the repro trim w/squeegee from Z Car Depot.  They caution the lack of plastic plug for the ends in the product description.  The OE stainless trim element was self-capped - that is, the metal was folded over to seal the end, never had plastic plugs to the best of my knowledge.

Thanks Jim.  It's unfortunate that these pieces lack anything to finish off the ends.  They look like a hand injury waiting to happen.  I guess I'm going to have to look around for original pieces.  Once again, thanks!

Should you find some OE trim in decent shape, consider swapping the squeegees off the current ones to to the OE pieces.  Its a pretty easy task - lose the staples and use pop rivets to attach the squeegees.  Been there, done that!
