Good evening everyone...glad to be here and hope someone can help with the two questions I have pertaining to my 75 coupe.
 
The first is...I have a vent opening behind the drivers side headrest (in the rear quarter panel) that appears as though it should have vent cover/grill over it....right now its wide open. Is this normal?
 
Secondly...is it normal for there to be gaps in the trim pieces, both above the rear center trim (just below the rear window trim) and also gaps between the rear quarter trim panels and the rear window molding? I've tried shifting, moving, manipulating and I can't seem to get the trim pieces to come together.
 
Any suggesions or opinions are greatly appreciated.
 
Rick

Thanks for the reply...that makes sense but I sure haven't found a vent cover to replace it with...maybe I'm not looking in the right places.
 
You sure have your hands full...but I'm guessing your lovin every minute of it. I kinda got into all this a little late...been in the military 26 years and to be honest...I think I would've loved to turn wrenches!
 
Respectfully...

If you get the chance that would be great...at least then I'd know what I'm looking for.
 
If you need anything let me know...I'm trying to put this thing together on a budget but if I have something you can use I'll gladly get or send to you.
