Interior windshield trim


Recommended Posts

Hi guys. Anybody have a pic of how this is held on. I'm assuming there's some kind of clip that the trim snaps into or screws into. But I have no idea what it looks like or where to order it in Canada. Previous owner had the front held on with butyl and the back just hanging. I thought easy fix, I'll just put some screws in but there's nothing to screw into. On a side note I was on an old car forum looking for ideas and couldn't get over the negative posts, the name calling, the back bitting. Thanks for being a good group of guys 7173 community.

WOW! That is one beautiful Mach 1!

Not sure if we have a picture of that in our "archives" that we took during disassembly. I'll try and find a picture. But by the time I find it, someone on this forum will be along before that with the correct info.

You have found the best 71-73 Mustang forum. Welcome! And coming from a long time Chevy guy, the folks here are better than other car forums by a lot. I couldn't do the resurrection of my wife's Mach 1 without this place.

My wife did 80-85% of the disassembly and documentation. I asked her and she said yes there are clips.  It may take a bit to find a pic. Not sure if there are differences in years. She just took a pic of what it looks like bare. She's searching for a pic of clips installed right now. And says the clips fit in the open square holes.

I never saw any clips on mine, just holes in the sheet metal where the trim screws to. Mine is tight with just the screws. Good luck!

It has been a while but I seem to recall they just threaded into the metal. I use long pick to find the hole to get started. Been too long since I too one out.

When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??:P

Duh... Im so stupid. You guys are the best. Upon closer examination there are screw holes in the sheet metal. Had to peel the headliner back and poke around a bit but they are there.They seem to be on a 45 degree angle from the windshield so of course me trying to put screws in at 90 degrees was missing the mark. Both my wife and I totaly missed this.. You guys are GREAT! Thankyou.

Great! I was momentarily worried my wife's bagging and labeling was incomplete. No clips, just screws in the bag.

Kindred spirits or something like that MustangSally44! MY car in the shop is a 68 Camaro.
