  • Patent number: 4433867
    Abstract: An extruded plastic molding is attached to the roof rail and faces downwardly toward the door opening so that the molding conceals the spot welds on the roof rail. The molding has an outboard edge portion defining a recess which is installed over the pinch-weld flange and accommodates a sealant to prevent the flow of moisture through the interface between the panels at the pinch-weld and between the roof rail and the molding. The outboard edge portion also defines an upwardly opening drip gutter and has an integral longitudinal extending retention lip structure by which a decorative drip molding may be snap-retained on the molding. The inboard edge of the molding overlaps a leg of the door sealing strip.
