I installed Moleskin (thanks REBEL) last week. Job takes about 1 hour total. I used the document I got from BUFFY (thanks) to remove door panels. On a scale of 1-10 (10 the hardest) I think it is about a 2-3. The MoleSkin I got from REBEL was 1 inch wide and I cut in half to make 1/2 inch which was just about right.

I snapped a few pic's as I was intalling and added them to BUFFY's doc which I converted to a WEB page.

Hope this helps

YES:
The MOLE SKIN that I have been getting for members has a self adhesive backing and is manufactured for this application, it is not velcro! ! ! Also someone asked if they should install this if they are not going to tint their windows, I think the answer is yes as I remember reading about alot of windows being replaced last summer ( chech old posts )
I ruined TWO tint jobs before I figured out what was wrong "with the help of people on this site" and found the FIX . It's well worth the hour it takes.
The MOLE SKIN should be available at parts and paint or auto glass supplier, but if you can not locate it let me know and I will help you out.

Hey John,

I still like you best... even though you are my twin "Adobe" Brother and dad always liked you more than he did me... ! ;)

I have to agree we have a lot of talented members on our site. I like the great detailed photo and sketches. Heck I might even try that one myself.

From your photos it looks like the moleskin only contacts the outside of the glass.

Does the glass come into contact with anything on the inside?

Thanks

George: Very, very good set of directions and sketches. In fact better than most GM servce manuals I have seen. This site continues to impress me with comments and suggestions from fellow guy/gal SSR owners. Thank you for taking the time to snap the photo's. Dave

Can anyone tell me how the mole skin has worked after installing on windows that have been tinted? Has it stopped the scratchingof the tint? And the longest someone has had it on their windows and still doing the job. Thanks, Funnyface p.s. this is the most wonderful car site.

Interesting and thanks for the great illustrations. By the way, I used to use Moleskin on my foot to protect it while skiing after a bad break and surgery. That Moleskin was found at any drug store and looks the same except this application is in a longer & narrower piece made for window protection. Is this the same stuff made by Dr. Scholls?
