Windshield Trim

In taking the trim off and noticing how much crap had accumulated in there, it occurred to me that having rubber without the trim would not do this, but is it something that would leak using a seal like that. Appreciate any opinions or experiences.

BTW, have all the trim and new clips already, so it ain't a money or equipment thing

Seem to remember reading somewhere about Safelite being able to do this without the trim, anyone know?

I think the trim is funky. Rust or not, I don't know, but I'd like the look of something cleaner.

I prefer the metal trim, but I intend to buy some rubber trim as a hedge against the day when the metal trim is no longer available.

not so much how it looks to me, there was just so much crap under it, sort of like the rockers on the side, but those are easy to clean out
