5th Gen window trim restoration

Aloha everyone, just thought I'd post up some pics of my renewed window trims on my 5th gen.

When I baught the car they were in a bad state, the drivers side window wouldn't shut properely if opened and the passenger side was completely taped up.

I went to Honda and they priced up the parts to 240 GBP, thats two rubbers and two metal fixings, I decided that was a bit steep and therefore searched eBay and found somebody breaking a 5th gen and baught the parts i wanted for 60 GBP.

When they arrived they did need a little TLC but after a rubdown of oil and a strip + respray of the metal fixings they were ready to go on the car.
I didn't have a tutorial or anything, just a quick skim through the Honda Manual gave me a rough idea of what needs to be taken off and in which order the door trim was built, after that its common sense, However I have since found a D-I-Y of this job on PZ the link to which is here;

I hope this helps anyone with rippling trims


This is the passenger side window before.

This is the drivers side before.

Passenger side after refurb, drivers side matches but I didn't get a photo.
