Default Windshield trim

I have my windshield out to clean up the channel and replace the glass. Can the upper trim and trim retainer be installed after the glass? I would like to wait until after I paint the truck to install the new trim and retainer.
Thank you for your advice!

Yes.

Mine went several years before I realized that trim piece was missing. I found it on ebay, so I have one now.

I went to a local auto parts store that also does windshields.

He (D21-1995) should call around his local glass companies. I'm sure someone will have...

My deductible on glass is $100, so I usually take that route.

What did you pay? Does it have the antenna in the glass? Some of us (SE's) have this option and need the 2nd aerial.

Probably at least as bad as a Jeep so worse than a cow.

Mine has a small chip in it and is all scratched up. I never considered replacing it. Thought it would be too much of a pain to find a place. But from a few of the other comments sounds like it should be pretty easy to find a place.


Thanks
