I am trying to figure out the correct way finish the rear quarter window area. My questions are:
- Is the aluminum cantrail piece always covered in vinyl matching the interior of the car? My interior is restored to its original red, so it seems a bit odd to have a red strip of vinyl visible between the walnut wood and the window chrome.
- Is there a rubber gasket that goes into the lip of the aluminum cantrail, sealing the inner face of the quarter window against the alum cantrail? If so, it is one continuous length of rubber seal, fitting into the alum cantrail pieces, from the front of the door frame, along the top of the door, and around the rear quarter window?
Here is a photo of what mine looked like when i took it apart before restoration. It had black interior, so black vinyl around alum cantrail, then a rubber seal fitting into the cantrail. But that rubber seal was different (smaller) that the rubber seal used in the cantrail on top of the door.
