I have a '71 Mach 1 (fastback).  Does anyone know how these trims are installed.  I can't seem to figure out how to make the quarter trim panels work with them.

If it's the same as the coupe, it goes on top of the quarter panel piece, but underneath the trim piece that runs along the top of the window.

If the screw hole isn't lining up, you may need to make sure that the quarter panel piece is positioned correctly and seated down into the quarter window channel.

They say, "A picture is worth a thousand words."  I thought the quarter trim would go over the pillar trim.  This makes so much more sense.  

Thanks!!!
