Also thinking of putting some strips on the roof 56 Buick wagon style just toying with the idea so
Found some seat side trim strips massaged one into the correct shape i think they would do the job

Coming along nicely, it's good to get windows in.
Like the roof strips but can you drill holes in the roof to fit them? That's when I'd change my mind lol.

would look good if you had strips on the tailgate as well .....
Had a big misunderstanding at the store today...when the cashier said strip down facing me...apparently she was referring to my credit card...

Rather than drill holes in the roof could you just shape them then fill the backs of the strips with Silastic or similar and then when dry use a double sided tape like they do in most modern badges and trims?
Looking brilliant by the way and the strips look great up top.
