Now Shipping The Rear Window Bottom Channel for the 1966/67 GM A-Body 2 Door Coupes!

posted Apr 4, 2020, 11:59 AM by Dane Belden   [ updated Apr 4, 2020, 11:59 AM ]

Yes we very much do appreciate feedback from our current and prospective customers and here is proof - we had been hesitant to manufacture the rear window bottom channel for some models due to the availability of reasonably priced trunk filler panels. As it turns out, a significant portion of the restorers would like to avoid the replacement of the 66-67 GM A-Body trunk filler panel and wanted bottom channels. So here they are, we waited too long, but we did it! Thanks to all and apologies to many for not heeding the advice sooner, but for those who would rather re-channel than replace, we now have you covered. Prices and details can be found by CLICKING HERE and then scrolling to the Chevelle, Cutlass, LeMans, or Skylark button.

We have gotten many requests for bottom channels for the 68-72 A-Body and have made some on a limited basis because there are already trunk filler panels available for many of them. Even so, many have valid reasons why they don't care to change the entire trunk filler panel so we have decided to add the bottom channels for the Buick and Pontiac A-Body to our standard line of rear window channels. Got rust in your bottom channel, but want to keep your trunk filler panel? We can help!

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

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).

So we now can supply a complete rear window replacement channel set along with bottom corner quarter patches.
