My 79 came factory equipped with white body side mldg, it was never reinstalled after previous paint job, is there a specific height and is it above or on the where the body curve is in the center. These were stick on from what I have read on build sheet bingo, who do you recommend I buy them from found some on EBay for 35.00

Oh those things, boy lemme tell you it took ages for me to find correct exact reproductions. I think i've got he exact same ones you're looking at on ebay, are those from 78hitman? They are the closest thing to 100% correct availble. When you buy them off him, he sents you a printed out set of instructions straight from the service manual. But in short, if you ook at the body of your 'bird, you will just slightly see where the crest of the doors and fender is. You want to have it perfectly perpendicular to that contour, and you want it ontop of that contour, so right up to the edge on the top side.

Hello and thanks for the info, the seller is 78tahitman, so Im assuming this is the same guy, surface prep is just using alcohol to clean the surface?
