accesory trim


Post by rmcrh » Mon Nov 07, 2011 6:19 pm

I have a chevron with strips that I have seen used as accessory trim. I am missing clips for the strips. Where can I find any? They are smaller than any of the regular trim pieces and in turn the clips I have.

The chevron and strips are stock for 1940 Deluxe models. The center strip is rounded with a radiused end and the side ones are flat with a squared end. Short set on the front fender, long on the rear. The clips can be found in catalogs catering to automotive restorers. I can't remember the name of where I found some years ago but google molding clips and you might find them. Maybe check Dennis Carpenter online.

Rob, your killing me. This took some searching. It appers that the front chevron has its clips soldered in. They are nothing more than fender side trim clips that were squished. In the picture you will see the two different sizes for the strips. This hardware came with a set I bought years ago. Could be oem or one of the many after market venders back when. Look up Easyruss Grand Rapids, Michigann Ebay. He should have them all or Old Dudue Bob L
