Vinyl roof gutter trim

Postby HenrikI » Mon Nov 05, 2018 8:35 pm

Hi Folks,

I have a question for all of you, who have a mk3 with a vinyl roof. My friend is looking for the "rain channel/roof gutter" trim. We have tried the same part that eastkentsupplies sells. (http://www.eastkenttrimsupplies.com/roo ... 2x14883012)
But we've had no luck fitting the trim to the car. specifically the very last bend.
How have you guy's fittet the trim ? - Or what else have you done ?

Hope that you can help.

Regards,
Henrik

In all of the nut & bolt restoration of my car, fitting these East Kent gutter trims to my Vinyl roof channels was the biggest bastard of a job of the all the work that was carried out.

We cut small lengths, formed & shaped them to do the rear end pieces as there is no way they will form all of the rear "C" shape in one go. The rest is made up of one piece running from the front of the car to as far round the "C" shape at the rear as you can get it.

It took many hours to get this right so Good luck ;)
