You have to remove the weather stripping and the wind seal at the front. The screws are for just the weatherstripping track, there are rivits underneath that hold the trim. After you drill the rivits push the a-pillar trim up along the a-pillar or you will break the clip in behind it. It's not that hard if you take you time and DO NOT pry things off. Also found using a screw driver the same width as the weather stripping track will help prevent tearing it, don't just pull the weatherstripping off.
I am in the middle of doing this right now. I am going to borrow a video camera and make a how to tape on removing the gaskets and trim. I have one side done so I can show a before, after, and how to do it. I also have brand new gaskets and trim with parts #'s etc.
How many people would pay a few dollars, maybe 15$ plus shipping for a tape, and a few pages showing the parts from the 86 catalog and what is shown in the 89 and 86 FSM for the T-tops??
If enough interest I may make a few extra copies. I want to make a tape for myself becasue once you remove them you will see where they built up areas with dumdum to prevent water from running inside the channnels and also where Cars and Concepts applied liberal amounts of silicone. they also used some tricks on how they overlaped some of the gaskets at the edges so the water wont run in. My 86 Daytona has the orignal gaskets and they are in pretty decent shape but I have a chip in my windshield and want to replace it and am going to have the car painted so I wanted to remove everything for paint work.
Im looking to install a set of older style tail lights on my dodge Omni. They have the stop/running, reverse and amber turn signal.
I have done this on my 97 Dodge Neon by swapping the Euro tails as they have the amber turn.
My issue is separating the turn signal from also acting a a break...
The first two pics are from the day I brought it home. Got it for FREE from the original owner due to a failing headgasket. The next few we're from 5yrs later after it had been totally transformed. Makes me sad to think that I ended up parting the car out...
currently do a full restoration on my 86 glhs. the side mirror glass is loose. is there anyway to adust the cables to take up some of the slack? also should there be 2 rubber feet inside the holes of the housing? thanks in advance.
