i want to take the vinyl off my regal because its cracked and just leave it off so its a hard top...but there is trim that goes up the side infront of the back passenger window and then goes across the roof...

this is what it looks likeon:


and then off...


i was wondering what do i do when i take it off..i dont leave that trim on do i? and if i do what do i do with that ugly part under the trim...or is there anyway to even make it look clean when i take it off...

thanks everyone

doesnt it look ugly? cuz theres like a line bulging out on top of the car
That shit would look ugly as hell...grind that bitch off and have a custom pillar cut from sheet metal to replace it. You could paint it to match or chrome it...

Either that or check out other G-bodies and see what trim they used...

Not sure man...like I said, you'll have to check out other Regals to see what they did. There might be an oem part that will prevent you from having to go "custom..." ;)

:cool: Cut the factory trim just shy of the drip rail molding n paint it to match car
whatchu mean, just have it going vertical and cut off the part where it starts curving over the roof?
