Chrome trim on windshield rubber

Does the chrome trim on the rubber seal HAVE to be used when installing the windshield? I don't care if its on there or not plus, wouldn't it be easier to install if its NOT on there?

Re: Chrome trim on windshield rubber

You can put it in afterwards but I think it is easier to do before hand. I don't think it makes it any harder to install.

Can it be left off? I really don't want it on there.

Re: Chrome trim on windshield rubber

If you buy the rubber that is used without it.
There are two types:

and

I am not knowledgeable enough to know if you can use the one made for the trim without using the trim.

I agree. Just use a new windshield rubber... regular, without the trim.

Re: Chrome trim on windshield rubber

OK, just got off the phone with LMC. As stated by Rocknrod, the rubber comes two different ways, 1 with the groove for the trim and, one without the groove. Fortunately I got the one I need, the one without the groove. The place that's going to do it is Chip Away Auto glass, in Mansfield, TX 817-690-4103. I'll let everyone know how it turns out.

If your stainless windshield trim is in good shape without dings and includes clips covering the joint, I'd like to buy it. Let me know.
