i have been thinking about wheel well trim and looked at clarks and wondered if the 65 trim serews on or sticks on? also i have not paid much attention but it says the front's are in 2 pieces( unless i missread ) could someone post a close up picture of the wheel well so i can get an idea. also if anyone used the 66/69 trim on a 65 how did that work. thanks

Hello. The trim screws onto the lip. Yes, the 65 is in two pieces and is thicker that the 66 up. I have a 65 and will put the later trim on because I like the slimmer appearance. I don't have a photo, but maybe Clark's Corvair Parts has one in their catalog online.

All 66 and later is in 1 piece. The 65 fronts are in 2 pieces and the 65 rears are 3 pieces. They all screw on. With that being said, the screw locations are not in the same place, so, if you use 66 trim on a 65, you will need to drill new holes and vice-versa

On EM's, Was the Rocker Panel trim the same length for coupe, sedan, and Wagon ? OR, was 4-door and Wagon the same length ?
