Worked on headliner trim pieces and checked to mod back window trim to stainless. It all just takes time. Still have to fab inside lower window trim for below windows. It's only about 7 ft on each side to fab.

Installed small trim pieces and worked on fabing one piece I was missing. I hope to start on inside lower trim tomorrow. Wish me luck.

Got my small trim piece fabed and installed also started on the lower window trim. It needs to be filled and smoothed out but it fits and that is the main thing.

Re: 45 year project, 65 wagon

Worked on more small things today. Put on door handles, locks and latches on the tailgate. Still need to finish inside window trim so I can move on to mounting back windows. It's getting closer to finished everyday. More pics tomorrow.

Put in tailgate window and worked on adjusting it. Got inside door handle linkage installed. It's all small things now and it is slow but steady. Should be done in a couple of weeks I hope.

Tailgate window proved to be a problem. The channel at the bottom had spread because of rust and wouldn't clear the top lip on the inside of the tailgate. I took all of the windows I had and made one good one. Hope to install it tomorrow. Then it's on to the next problem.

Put the tailgate window in and installed fill panels for inside tailgate. Had to pickup more sheet metal to make new tailgate inner panel. Plan to put carpet on it when it's all finished.

Got the new panel cut and primed. Just put in enough screws to hold it in place for now. More trim work tomorrow I hope.

Coming along nicely. Very interested to see what you work out with the stainless.

Re: 45 year project, 65 wagon

It's two sets of 4dr wagon glass trim I hope to make a set for the 2dr wagon out of. All I can do is fit and cut till it looks right.

Re: 45 year project, 65 wagon

Done some fab on inside rear window trim today. It may take another day or two to finish but I want it to look nice for hand made trim and I'm not in a rush at this point.
