its coming along, the dash isn't bad, Im waiting on getting the windshield to put the dash in and finish it up, I have to use the parts to help hold the vinyl in place because I can't find a glue strong enough to hold it in place, so once I get it installed I'll put in the guages to finish off the last part of the dash.

ok got a question. for the side drip rails/window gasket track, circled in yellow
75 el camino project.  - Page 6 El_cam10
is there a seal between the chrome trim to body? I know there is one between the window gasket track and chrome but I cleaned the chrome too good I can't tell if there was anything. and also does anyone know if there is any kind of sealant on the A-pillar pinch weld cover.

Here is the stuff you need under your drip rails. Its not like what the factory used but it will work. Not sure what you mean "plastic that protects the glass from the touching edge of the trim around the front and rear window". Do you have a pic?

That plastic you mention is part of the window trim itself. Its not really needed but it did come from the factory. I dont think it was an anti-squeak but more of not allowing dirt to get under the trim that easily. Very thin, black plastic thats on the bottom side of factory trim.

All my original trim has it. I'd grab a pic but my trim is currently all tucked away. I wouldnt be concerned using the trim without it especially if the car is garage kept. Most cars I see dont have it or its broken off.

most of my trim has it but its really brittle and broken off in spots, and the top one has like 4 2inch sections of it spaced out, making me think it was protecting the glass from the aluminum from making noise or scratching it, Ill get pictures of it today but that is exactly what I was talking about.

I ended up using truck cap seal and trimmed it where needed, seems to work pretty well.
