Yes, but are expensive. Pricing will be about $125.00 for the full kit which includes new sides, top, bottom and 4 corners. (this is a pretty standard price nationwide)

I will check and see what our price is on them tomorrow. If you are interested, I am sure I can get them for you as cheaper than you can find them anywhere.

Are you just thinking about replacing the moldings? Are they cracking/discoloring? These molding are "push-in" style and can be installed without removing the windshield, but is easiest when the windshield is pulled. If windshield is not removed, there is typically a lot work cleaning out the urethane between the glass and body before the new ones can be installed. It is key to have the proper primers to cover any scratches to avoid any future rust. Urethane is also required to hold them in. There is NOTHING else recommended to use to hold them in. PERIOD. NO glues, silicones (the worst!!), bathtub caulk, liquid nails, etc., etc.

You could certainly do it yourself with some instruction.

I'm also interested in a price for the moulding. I am going to replace the WS in my 86 wagon and I know the moulding will be messed up during removal.
Btw, the urethane isnt cheap, about $10 a tube and 2 are needed (for me anyways).

i re seated the windscreen in my 86 3dr cpe...

used 1.5 tubes of 3M urethane @ 12.99 each.
one tube would hold the glass in, but then you would be left with a gap around most of the windscreen. thats where the second tube was applied, after the glass was seated and mildly squished to assure positive seating, i went around and filled the gaps and leveled the whole mess so the trim would sit smooth and level

the only thing that holds the trim pieces on is the urethane.

i destroyed my longer trim parts trying to remove them, but got lucky and
found a wagon in the yard that had all the pieces AND they all came off without
destruction.

Well, I was surprised to find out that these molding go for $65.00 wholesale from Pilkington/LOF. PPG warehouse is not open today to check, but will probably be right in the same ballpark.

It is always possible like Humble to find a descent set in a yard and possibly get them out intact. If interested, shoot me a message. Shipping will probably be under $10.00 UPS. If you are in a rush (this week), unfortunately I can't help out. I am leaving in about 1 hour for a weeks vacation in Massachusetts and I won't return until a week from tomorrow.

Let me know.
