How to remove 1968 GT-E anodised side mouldings / trim

The GT-E was only available for a few brief months in 1968. Total production would not have kept the assembly line busy for more than a half day. If you know anything about a GT-E, it is important, and this is the place to share it. The GT-E registry is maintained by Jim Pinkerton.

How to remove 1968 GT-E anodised side mouldings / trim

Guys,

I am about to remove the GT-E side trim pieces and have them restored. Before I start, what is the best way to do this? Do I need to access all the cavities to undo the nuts, or is there some way to release the trim from the outside? Any tricks?

Mike

The only trick part is getting into the area just behind the doors and in front of the wheel well openings, remove rear seat, trim panels, water vapor barrier, arm rests, window cranks, and un screw the nuts , unscrew nuts in the trunk well area, and unscrew the screws, simple job, as long as all of the items cooperate
