Default Can't find anywhere to buy "Moldings around the rear window" on my C3 -79

Hi,
Do anyone know where I can buy the "moldings around the rear window"?
I have searched on a few webshops, but no cigar.

Or what is the official name for those parts, perhaps I'm searching for the wrong thing

quick question, are yours missing or are you doing a resto and want new ones? I have a set from my 81 that are so-so but could be usable if you don't have any on your car.

Hi,

When we bought the car a "few" things were missing
We have chromed upper part, but are missing the lower parts.

The thing is that we are living in Sweden, so sending the parts can be "challenging"

The rear window moldings have never been reproduced, and were discontinued by GM over 20 years ago. Used ones do turn up from time to time, but you're right, sending them to Sweden would be "challenging".

I have a complete, 4 piece NOS set of 78 rear window moldings, which are the same as 79-82's, except they're polished, instead of being painted black. I have been asking $350 for the set, but I have no idea how I would get them to Sweden, or what it would cost. 15 years ago I sent a used set across the US to California, and it cost about $75, not counting what it cost me to build a crate for them.
