Belden Speed & Engineering is now manufacturing trunk gutter channel for your 1960's - 1970's GM car.  This is a common area for rust to form and can be a fabrication challenge for the restorer.  Our channels are manufactured from 20 gauge CRS right here in the United States.  They come in 24" lengths and be used in the straight sections of the gutter, pie-cut to form around corners.  Depending on the extent of your rust, they can be plug welded to the existing horizontal wall or vertical part of your trunk gutter.  To see the details and pricing of the trunk gutter channel go to our patch panel products main page and scroll down and click on the make and year car of interest, or CLICK HERE.

1970 Chevelle Rear Window Rust Repaired With Belden Speed & Engineering Factory-Fit Patch Panels!

posted Feb 8, 2019, 5:01 AM by Dane Belden   [ updated Feb 8, 2019, 5:02 AM ]



Our window repair channels and patches are designed to fit your A-Body, F-Body or X-Body with minimal hassle and post-installation bodywork. We recently received some photos of an installation of a full rear set of channels and bottom quarter corners by Alfredo Ruiz on his 1970 Chevelle. 


He did a great job and as you can see from the photos there will be very little filler required for a seamless fit. Our parts come pre-primed with etch-weld primer (hence the red oxide color), the channels are pre-punched for plug welding and they fit the factory contours.  To see technical details, pricing and ordering information for your Chevelle CLICK HERE

1968 -1972 Buick Skylark and GS Rear Window Bottom Channels Now Available!

posted Dec 23, 2018, 12:52 PM by Dane Belden




Over the past few months we have had a number of requests for the bottom rear window channels for the 1968-72 Buick A-Body (Skylark/GS). We have made a number of them in the past, but we typically don't tool up for bottom rear window channels because of the availability of good-quality trunk filler panels. Well this really isn't the case for the Buick A-Body and the popularity of this car for restorers is gaining. So we have tooled up and have added the bottom channel to our line for the Buick. So we now can supply a complete rear window replacement channel set along with bottom corner quarter patches.

While our rust repair products have been focused on GM A, F & X Body platforms, we do custom fabrications for other muscle cars that interest us and today we shipped a set of rear window channels for a 1968 Plymouth Road Runner. The rear glass is tricky due to its unique contours at the top of the glass. It was a challenge for sure, but our fab shop was up to the task! We hope to show you the installation photos in the near future, so stay tuned.
