I had a new PPG windshield put in a few months ago. I think the bits you pictured are what I provided as factory replacement parts for the installation but they did have their own molding available to use and it should work just as well. For cosmetic pieces I always say go OEM if it fits your budget or you can't accept anything else but by all means it's a good thing we have alternatives for our older cars.

Thanks for the input , what I really was wanting was some photos of some sc's out there with there non oem molding. just got the car painted and the bodyshop taped it just a little under the oem molding so wanting to know how much difference the aftermarket would cover or would it stop right at the edge of the roof. I seen it both ways and the windshield folks don't know. just seen a picture of someone's else build and the whole roof was rusting starting from the windshield molding. I guess I'll call toyota tomorrow and find out how much those pieces go for. http://i186.photobucket.com/albums/x...110_142935.jpg
