I'm usually a Geo Metro guy but the Sprints keep pulling me back in. I traveled down to Lexington, KY to pick this one up. Very little rust on one spot on the rocker but nothing underneath or on the frame. Typical rear window seals cracking and cracked dash. But it has new tires, rebuilt carburetor, alternator, and stereo/speakers. The body is solid and straight.

I totally gutted the interior and did a thorough cleaning and repainting of the trim before putting everything back in. For now am going with a two-tone exterior, although later in the year I may take out all the little microdents and paint her stock red.

I'm looking for ideas in replacing the rear side window trim on my 1988 Chevy Sprint four door wagon. For those who have owned one, you know this trim cracks and breaks off pretty easily.

I've tried taping the glass and body area off and filling it with black RTV, but it comes out pretty uneven. Any suggestions or aftermarket trim I could get my hands on?

You might try sourcing it New from Suzuki. Try searching in the South Africa market fields.
