    Question Need a confirm/deny on '99 Deville W/Shield

    Hi gang - just had the windshield on the Deville replaced yesterday (they came to the house while I went to work) - the guy seemed to do a good job, but I noticed while looking at it that there is NOT any moulding around the lower outside edge of the glass, down at the cowling where it runs just aft of the wipers, etc. The entire bottom edge, in other words, is bare. Is this SOP, or did the guy forget a piece of weatherstrip/moulding? I just don't remember if there was anything there before, and I don't know of any other 99's around here I can check to see...

    Would appreciate a look-see from anyone with a matching model and see if there is indeed any weatherstripping/moulding along that bottom edge or not.

    PS - Cost installed with "lifetime guarantee" against chips and cracks was around $250.00 - much less than I feared.

    Thanks!

    Jim

    Thanks very much, guys! Isn't it weird when you notice something like that and can't remember if it's right or not?.. might just be age creeping up on me, though. ...

    Thanks again.

    Jim
