In this article we replace our old sealed beam headlights with a pair of new XEON headlights.  And what a difference it made.  We are using a ’56 for our install, but the process is the same for all years and pretty much all styles of replacement headlights available today.  Halogen, XEON, HID, LED etc.

Danchuk Makes Tri-Five Window Channel Replacement Easy – 12-06-19

These two articles cover pretty much everything involved in replacing the fur channels on your classic.  One is for the fur channel replacements on a 4-door sedan and the other is for replacement of the moleskin in the upper quarter window channel on a 2-door hardtop.

The fur channel kits are model specific but the basic principles of doing the fur channel replacements are pretty universal. (Scroll down for individual fur channel kit instruction sheets).  The article for the 4-door sedan will be pretty much the same for any of the 2 or 4-door sedans and wagons.

The article for the 4-door sedan will also be the same when you are replacing the hard channel at the vent window on all models.  The 2-door hardtop kit will be pretty much the same on the front doors of a convertible or Nomad.  The rear quarter window upper channel information shown below in article 13.2 for installing the moleskin would be similar for the rear door channels on a 2 or 4-door hardtop, convertible or Nomad.  The 4-door hardtop will be pretty much the same on the front and rear doors as the 2-door hardtop.  Refer to the individual instruction sheets for each model for specifics.
