I'm having a problem with the rear moling fitting. I first purchased an after market set and it fit fine but the new flunky at the body shop thought it would be a good idea to put silicon around it to keep water out.--jack hole so they purchased another set after damaging it to remove the silicon--didn't fit. I then bought a full set in ford packaging. now there is a gap of about 1/16 at the bottom and the finish is, in my opinion, worst than the after market set? What is going on?

Sounds to me like the used the wrong clips. Possibly they used the aftermarket clips with the OEM mouldings? Or, they have the wrong clips altogether.

no the clips were all original in good condition. the gap is where the molding is to over-lap at the bottom. the spacing to the body is ok

Doesn't the '65 use an overlapping molding joint {PN 42436}, about 3/4" wide or so to bridge the gap between moldings?
