    upper door trim

    Looking for the trim that seals the door and the glass. Both sides external, passenger internal.

    Not really sure what these would go for. Not looking to spend much and these are not on my priority list since I'm not driving my car yet.

    I believe I have all of this. Are you talking about the metal L shaped pieces? Or just the rubber weatherstripping?
    $30 shipped for all the rubber. The metal pieces will require a much bigger box, so that would be more.

    the window moldings? You can buy them new from Cherry Hill Mitsu for about $65/each. You'll want to buy those new, in all honesty.

    really? what all does that include? there are actually 6 or 7 different pieces of weatherstripping per door, so it gets confusing. (7 if u count the metal L piece with a rubber edge)
    and actually i think i misread what he was talking about. i was thinking about the rubber between window/roof and door/body

    are you/he talking about the straight plastic/rubber piece that's attached to the door panel and sits against the glass? (inside)
    and the rubber coated metal strip that's attached to the door and sits against the glass (outside)

    i have a set of (outside) pieces, not in good shape, i think i'm going to trash those. (i would like to know if those can be bought new, as they always fall apart over time)
    i have 2 or 3 sets of (inside pieces) i believe all in great shape. i'm sure at least 1 set is in perfect shape, except maybe some not quite perfect clips from trying to remove them from the door panels

    anyway, if this is the passenger (inside) piece u need, u can have it for $10 + shipping, i would need a zip to get a shipping quote on it tho

    the rubber that sits against the glass inside, is attached to the door panel, and you will most likely destroy the interior door panel if you try removing it. You're best off replacing the entire interior door panel.

    I was referring to the exterior door/window trim. Those are the trim pieces that most commonly go bad, and can be ordered from Cherry Hill Mitsu easily. They usually have those in stock, at least every time we've called.

    nice, thanks, good info
    i did pretty good at pulling off the inside pieces, just requires a whole lot of patience
    i was going to replace them in my last car, but i sold it before i got around to putting them on
