1967 Chevelle windshield “hockey stick” help

Question, my original “hockey sticks” had a small amount of rot that cleaned up nice after media blasting. I’m guessing the missing area housed screws?

I purchased new ones from AMD but they fit like crap. The radius seems to be off.

I’d rather use my originals. Will the missing sections cause any issues? It is in the windshield channel.

The light grey pieces are the original and the darker one is the AMD.
Thanks in advance.

Joe

You can't weld a piece in there to replace that triangle of metal? Agreed, use your originals, send the AMDs back.

You could probably just drill a new hole over a little bit in the good metal.

Scott,

I thought about using the AMD parts for donor metal, but while the media blast took out the cancer, the steel at the edge is thin. Actually, an hour ago, I purchased a pretty clean pair of GM hockey sticks. At least they looked really clean. They will arrive next week.

I remember when taking them off, they Had copious amount of seam sealer holding them on. When re-installing them repeat with seam sealer on the windshield side?

How about that gap I have in the corner of the windshield channel? Is that supposed to be there? I had considerable rot in that area and the lower channel has been replaced. Not sure if I should have a gap there or not.

Re: 1967 Chevelle windshield “hockey stick” help

They need seam sealer on the inside edge. Also, there's weep hole there for water to drain out of the windshield channel. So even the missing metal may not have hurt you. But hey if you found a good used set, you are world's ahead.

Troy,

So there is supposed to be a screw in the windshield channel edge of the “hockey stick”?

Re: 1967 Chevelle windshield “hockey stick” help

Which edge Joe? Back side where the door weatherstripping goes, yes. Windshield channel side- i don't believe they had one. If someone knows definitively, please speak up.

Scott,

The lower (bottom) of the windshield channel. My originals had, what looked to be, a round screw hole at the edge of where the cancer was eliminated. The AMK fastener pack only contained 4 flat head screws, when 6 are required, and 8 button head screws with sealant on the threads. I can place 6 of those but I’m clueless as to where the other two go. I assumed they went in the lower channel. I may be completely wrong.

So, mine is a 66 and definitely had a screw in the windshield channel.

Yours almost look as if the screw hole was never a complete circle? What does the AMD ones look like?

Troy,

My originals were rotted there so that edge is missing. The AMD ones have no hole for a screw so I assumed one had to be drilled, like the other three locations that take the sealant coated button head screws.

My 67 is a March built vehicle. Perhaps the screw was phased out later in the model year? The GM replacements I hVe coming don’t seem to have a screw hole there either.

I would definitely include that screw. It's critical to keep proper panel alignment.

Who knows why the AMD piece don't have a hole.

Yes, that is a round screw hole half gone and a bit big.
Make sure when you drill for the new screw it is low enough that the
window trim goes down far enough and dont HIT the screw head
holding the trim to HIGH.
Hopefully the GM replacements you have coming has the holes...did you not get pics
before you bought them?

I received 8 photos, all different angles. One of the angles, the area where the screw should be, is pretty fuzzy. It does not appear to have a screw hole, I could be mistaken.
