The angle of that window channel on 68-72‘s is a water trap for sure. Probably why I had to R&R the channel. Pugsy I hope you didn’t put drain holes in yours.

Yeah it’s just a ledge under the trim, that’s why when that rots thru, then the floor starts to rust out soon following. Mines in a garage, but guys that parked under trees and so forth (pine needles, leaves) over the years, it is going to rust thru there in the corners. It‘s a truck, I doubt mine was treated like a LS6. Heck it even had a topper on the back at some point to funnel junk into that ledge, under the trim. If it’s not in bad shape, guys should blast the bottom trim with a hose to clean it out regularly. Pontiacs, Buick’s all used that window ledge.Not yet.
I will be popping the trim off for a quick color change this winter.
Why would you say not to drill a drain hole? Because it will go inside the car?
Thanks.123Pugsy, that’s a nice bed cover you have on there. How is it holding up to weather?
I bought it from the States. Nothing good comes from Canada. Eckler's maybe. But I found the company after the fact and I could have bought it direct.123Pugsy, I like the look of it too, it finishes it off nicely. Did you search around for it or find it locally?
Thanks Bob, good suggestion. I wish I had more room. My fan belts had to be forced in; between the water pump pulley and fans. No room for a mechanical fan.I put a classic auto air in my 68 and it works fine here in FL. Paulie is going to need AC down here to cruise. One suggestion it got that I used was to install an electric fan together with my clutch fan, or you dont get much cooling at low speeds or idle.
