I would be happy to pay for a Trim Ring and shipping. I have a friend (ex engineer with quite a home machine shop) who said he would be willing to help me try to figure out a way to fit these.
Let me know..

so I received the 12” MQQN trimrings from Japan and thanks to a close Crosley member, Paula Whitney and her son Scott, I was able to borrow a crosley wheel to put these trimrings to the test. The results are this:
1) super fast shipping out of Japan
2) excellent customer service
3) i felt the quality was great
Now for the bad news:
1) they went on fine, but didn’t quite fit
2) it sat about 1/4” above the rim-maybe slightly less
3) from the side view- they look fantastic!
it appears the inner lip of the trimring is bottoming out on the lower lip of the wheel. a person could trim the inner lip of the trimring about 1/8” to bring the trimring in closer to the wheel- but it would take a steady hand with a grinder.
All in all, it was disappointing that they came within a 1/4” to being a complete winner in my book, but the slight gap was a setback in the search for replacement crosley trimrings.
Like i said, they look fantastic from the side but you can see the gap looking down at the wheel from above or to the side. i feel they are acceptable for a daily driver but for show, i’m not so sure. I personally, will probably grind down the inner lip of the trimring to help the appearance but I have OCD and i tend to be too discriminating on something when others feel what i see is just fine.
I purchased 5 and therefore, have an extra to ship around to other crosley members who want to see for themselves- so if your that kind of person, send me a private email. all i ask is you pay for the shipping-which is a lot cheaper than from Japan!
Doesn’t anyone out there have a NOS set of crosley trimrings that need to go to a desperate man-me!?!?

Out here in Cali 65mph on the Frwy is standard. You have to have a very road worthy crosley. Awesome video. Thanks

Park,

No problem.  For all of the Crosley folks around the country there just aren't enough videos of these great little automobiles.  And most of the ones up are not very good.

I've been videoing my ongoing work on my 1947 Round Side (albeit at a slow pace) and will cut it all together when it's done.

In the meantime keep driving and videoing!

Bill

Re: Sliding windows sticking

Tim Hamblen
 

I believe the newer tracks sold today are a tad bit taller (or thicker depending on how you look at it) than the OEM ones. If it's new glass and cut to the same size as the old ones it's too tight, even the old glass used over will be tighter.You may need to take the glass out  and take to the local glass shop and have them ground down a tad.


Re: Sliding windows sticking

L.E. Hardee
 

I believe there are tiny screws that go through the bottom of the double window track and into the metal to hold the window retainer frame in place.  I had trouble with stuck windows once and found the problem due to a screw head, that I didn't know even existed, sticking up too high. 

I worked for several years for a manufacturer of window channels for current production cars.  They sprayed krytox grease on the flock (the fuzzy stuff)  before they ship the channels to the car manufacturer.  It is supposed to lube the window channels for the life of the car.  Or at least until the warranty runs out.  LOL.  It is a teflon based grease so probably not original to Crosleys but might be a modern upgrade?

Hello All, I just took delivery of a '52 Station Wagon and am having a problem with the sliding windows. The rear ones are almost completely stuck and the front ones are so difficult to move that I'm concerned about breaking the glass. Has anyone had a similar problem? Any solutions? I've tried silicone spray which has helped a little on one window but I'm surprised by the lack of results on the other windows. Any advice would be appreciated-Jim Hudson
