  • Body Side Trim

    Are there any reproductions available of the thin, chrome/black trim that sticks along the side body panels? My originals were in rough shape, and I made replacements out of the 3M roll that is available, but being that the "chrome" is not metal but plastic with a thin clear film covering, after several years it is peeling and starting to look just as rough.

    Thanks!

    Nope, and NOS are impossible to find.
    My suggestion is to restore the originals with Mylar and vinyl dye.

      Never heard of this method. What exactly does it entail??

        I have not looked into it but basically getting into the nitty gritty of hardcore restorations...
        Searching the internet for Mylar chrome options is the first place to start, model cars come to mind.
