Question 64 chevelle windshield lower channel replacement

Hey All,

Looking for any info I can find on replacing the lower channel for my windshield. Went to install windshield last night and found lots of deep rust.

Looking around I'm seeing a decent amount of distributors with varying prices. Some actually state USA and Import. Any suggestions?

This will be my first foray into body work, needing all the help I can get!!

I bought both versions, to fix a 67 one time. The import was way nicer. Sharper corners, etc.

Thank you for the reply, that's somewhat disappointing to hear though.

Did a search and am buried in info from the site, reading through it all.

Re: 64 chevelle windshield lower channel replacement

Did mine, can't remember if it was import or USA made,purchased at a swap meet. Likely import. The fit was ok but was about a 3/16 inch short, so I had to add that much to one end. Before installing I would compare the length to the cowl vent making sure the tabs on c vent line up with slots in channel piece.
