I'm assuming you are referring to the plastic inner trim that snaps on around the window?

If so, I have used the reproduction pieces on a stock tunnel back window car....the curved pieces really did not fit well out of the box, so I had to use a heat gun and very carefully work the pieces to fit better

    Yea, mine is so brittle that it is falling apart so like a lot of stuff you "make it fit" I guess.

I've purchased the inside rear window trim for several different models (B bodies) from Legendary, IIRC the brand was AccuTrim, Zero issues with installation, no mods needed other than trimming the ends to my desired liking, and color changes, as they only offer the trim in black only...

I had issues too. The first set I bought the plastic broke due to being very brittle, sent it back after talking to the company. 2nd set the corners pieces did not fit well so had to pre heat them ,then mounted and worked fine.

Did you preheat with boiling water or heat gun?
