Funny background story - When he showed up at Carlisle with his first coupe, years ago, he had not yet figured out how to source the bright metal molding for the windshield frame (or any of the windows, really) and just left the black rubber molding naked.
The general consensus at the show was that it didn't look very good and we all said so (it's always fun to get Steele agitated, and it happens so easily - Merklin is pretty good at it, mostly by asking simple questions).
He went off in a huff, but a couple of cars later the bright molding started showing up. If you don't like it, it just has a tab that fits into a slot in the rubber and is easily removed.
Where do you get the bright metal moulding and window rubber for a coupe, besides Stoddard and others so priced?
