I am planning to swap a Fastback section onto a T-top notchback. I DO NOT want to break the plastic moldings on the read of the t-top roof. I have to remove them to pull off the rear notchback section. Does anyone have some good ways to remove them without causing them damage? I know they're usually glued down with a ton of glue, and most likely brittle. I wasn't going to do this, but with only one Fiero now, I really want it to be a fastback. Please throw out any tips or tricks you're used.. Or if someone has a cheap set of these, let me know.

I used fishing string to remove the ones on my 87GT t-top. I just used the string to cut through the caulk as I slid it under the pieces. There are supposed to be six clips holding those two pieces on, but mine didn't have any, just lots of black caulk. As far as I know mine have never been removed since installed by a C&C authorized installer. They did use a rivet for the one that is on the bottom where they meet in the center - the upper one covered it.

I went slowly and hoped for the best and didn't break anything.

Good luck!

You still sell reproduction end caps?

Thanks. I was thinking some type of wire but I didn't know how to get past the clips. I don't sell them anymore but "camel" on this forum does. At last he was still selling them about a year ago.
