HELLO......I had the same problem...But when I took them to a good interior place they had no problem and it only cost me $40.00 each and they made the Black vinyl windlace...Its not easy to get the windlace in the retainer...Believe me.I know.I tried.....Try to get someone who knows 55-57 interiors .....It will be worth the extra few bucks...
well this is what i did, 1st there was plenty of material so i took that material folded it over used some good glue ran a small bead down the metal strip used a putty knife to get it pushed in and let it set up , i later trimed the length , worked great and i have had no trouble, and no one has come up to say man that looks like s---, like i said i'm not a pro just a guy who thoght that my way would work and went for it.:anim_25:
You can sew a piece of 16 gauge wire in it.... or the suggestion of glueing in a wire would work if there is know one available to sew it for you. They are a pain in the ass even for us sometimes with thick leather
