CLK 320 convertible & 1970 Lincolnby Sueann Blackwell-Merrillville Auto Glass & Trim on 01/11/17
Sometimes, when restoring a vehicle you just can not find the parts you need. Or if you do find them wow on the price. Two examples are :
1.) 2003 Mercedes CLK320 Convertible. It was missing the pass side convertible top guide pin. Mercedes only sells this pin as part of the whole mechanism that closed the sunroof costing over $1,000. We purchased a 2004 Sebring convertible top guide pin - fits perfect and does the job for $30 part # 4864764.
2.) 1970 Lincoln . needed the qrt window side weather strips. that fit between the door glass and qrt window. Well, no one make this for this vehicle - but the Ford Mustang will fit and do the job.
I hope this helps anyone who is looking for a solutions for these problems
