I see some threads on this topic but no definitive answer on what I think is the best option to remove the goofy looking retaining tabs across the top of the windshield on my S2 coupe.
I recently got a hold of some chrome strips from a series 1 XJ6, thinking to install them instead of the series 2 originals. Cleaner look, and no mounting holes in these strips.
Even though the two cars have the same part number windshield and mounting gaskets, the series 1 trim strips do not have the same shape as my originals. The corner radii are wrong, and the series 1 strips seem to be for a lower height windshield. This doesn’t make sense. The strips may have been slightly mis-shapen from prior removal, but they aren’t mangled or bent out of plane.
Am I missing something?
