This is a pretty strange question, but can someone post a picture of the trim on the sides of your windshield (from the outside)?

I just had my windshield replaced yesterday. I didn't get to see my car until today and it looks a little strange. Probably just me. They guy that did it was kind of a pain, so now I'm probably just doubting his work.

Thanks in advance,

Slim

There is no trim on the Challenger windshield. The edge has a smooth finish and the glass is held in place by glazing adhesive.

Thanks GA, that's what I was gathering. Something still doesn't look quite right. Like I said, it's probably just me being paranoid. I've never had good luck with repairs.

I'll have to wait until this evening to get the camera. It looks like part of the problem is it isn't centered. I can fully fit my pinky finger between the glass and the frame on the driver's side, but not the passenger.

I'm going to drive it after lunch to check for leaks.

Windshield molding

Take a look at your molding around the rear deck window, from the factory the front windshield and the rear deck window molding matches, after a replacement windshield is installed, they almost always are different. The molding is bought by the foot, and it fits alot of different openings, kind of a one size fits all. Its just a chunk of rubber.
