Does anyone happen to have a picture of the underside of the upper trim? Perhaps if someone has a pair lying around they could snap a pic?
Carbon fiber would definitely not be a cheaper alternative...Actually I havent touched mine as of yet. I almost pulled the trigger on a black set recently but personal circumstances put a halt on that, but it got me thinking these past few days why someone hasnt offered a cheaper alternative? say out of carbon fiber? pretty sure one could piece together the necessary items to mold and make them for the cost of a upper trim replacement. so i think ima try my hand at it. just wanted to figure out what fasteners they use.
I got lucky and a guy from Florida was selling a few sets, picked it up at the Holden Extravaganza in Valdosta, GA this weekend. Your best bet to get a set is to hit up Marc from Commodore Specialties (wolfman1192 is his name here on the forums)Hey YutzyBrian - where did you locate the black window trim? Recently purchased a G8 GT and my lower trim is shot. Thanks in advance for any assistance you can send my way!
Can try gtog8ta.com, cheapestgmparts, eBay, or etc. for the trim. Bear in mind, the price of brand new reveal molding is a bit rich. Imagine most used ones would be in similar dry rot condition. Awhile ago, had the same thing happen and decided not to replace the trim. Instead, carefully ran a razor blade across the top and removed the rotten portion on all four doors. Problem solved and it took less than five minutes.I've been trying forever to find someone to sell me (used but in great shape to include the rubber seal not dry rotted) the chrome piece that goes along the lower side of the drivers side passenger window. That ONE is the only one on my car whose seal is dry rotted...
