Re: How to remove chrome strips along roofline
None of it is glued on a 66 ...
The rear V-shaped part of the vinyl top moldings have 3 nuts on each side that you can get to from inside the trunk. Remove those and pull the studs out of the holes, then you can pull that piece loose from the striaght piece on the side of the car. Then the straight piece has clips that hold it on. If you are very careful you can pop it off the clips, or better yet use a soft wood block and tap the rear end to slide the piece forward until it lets go of the clips.
The drip rail mldgs can be removed as suggested above, although it is darn hard to do with your hands. I always remove the roof-rail weatherstrip and its retainer first, then you can work from the inside of the car and use a wood block to tap the bottom edge of the mldg outward. Start at the front and go only until you get about half way between the back of the door glass and the curved part of the molding. Then start again at the bottom rear end and work your way up to near the curve. Then work a little from both sides of the cuve, going back and forth, until it pops off last at the curve.
If you try to go all the way from the front to the back, or all the way from the back to the front, you will bend the mldg at the curved area. The curve needs to pop loose last.
