    I usually use my knees to push into the front of the seat and push to the rear and then pull up with my hands. Almost a technique to it. Some are much easier then others. Not sure why. I have no idea on how to remove that type of quarter window trim. The larger quarter window chrome is actually glued in the glass sealant. The larger quarter window chrome trim has tabs that stick in the sealant.

    Sounds good so far. The Landau windows are held in behind the interior quarter trims. Remove the inside and you'll see the nuts to remove from the studs surrounding the triangle glass steel structure. They are sealed from the outside as well so shove your heavy knife in there and cut the perimeter, then shove from the inside. Find where needs more knife work, shove some more. It will hang up on the stud threads enough that it won't just immediately fall out and shatter on the floor, but be careful in the end of the process.

    That is the filler piece used on f-body with the small 1/4 windows. On the large window cars, the glass fills the space and either trim is around the opening, or louvers.

    It's the part Rattle Trap was referring to in his post a couple days ago.

    I see you have the typical vinyl roof caused rust.
