67 Camaro shaved drip rails

I thought I would start a discussion on shaved drip rails and unless I have missed it, I canít find any thing regarding this modification on this forum.
Iím gong for the clean black sealing rubber around the windows look and want the drip rails gone as well. Has anybody done this kind of mod on their car?
Looked on YouTube with limited results as well. Although Iím handy with the mig welder, I donít want to f$&k it up.
Any suggestions....tips

Richard, go check out my build thread. Search Hellfire. Assuming photobucket still works (as all my original thread pics were hosted there) you'll find I did all that and more. Flush mounted windows before there were kits to do so (it uses black rubber seal) and shaved the rails.

ah, sorry mate, didn't take step by step.

The drip rail isn't too hard, it's a simple weld. The way we did the window was to weld a small strip of metal in the frame, sort of wide of the trip which meant the glass would sit centre is the sills, then siliconed it in
