  1. I have3 related questions about the chrome on my 1948 Chrysler sedan: 1) Is all the trim on my car chrome, or is any of it stainless steel? 2) What do you recommend as far as polishing compounds for chrome and/or stainless go? 3) How does one go about replacing glass, and replacing , or restoring the chrome trim around the four wing windows (the trim that is attached to the glass itself)? Can this be detached and rechromed when new glass is installed? How? By heat gun?
  2. I m looking for someone to fabricate some replacement trim spears for the hood of my car. Does anyone know of a company or individual that makes stainless trim pieces. So far, I have only located two individuals who do it with a solid piece of stainless. It looks good, but I would prefer the look of OEM stainless trim found on most cars. I am hoping one of you will know of someone that makes trim pieces using a bead roller! In the meantime, I will see if LAZZEE offers this service to his customers. There must be somebody here that knows of a source! Regards, Doug
  3. Hey All, I've had this piece of chrome (or stainless?) trim for some 35+ years. I pulled it off a car in the woods when I was in my early teens in the mid 70's. I don't recall what car it came from, but believed it was from the 50's. There were several cars in a group so I'm not sure. It's been hanging on my wall for the longest time and I'm thinking that maybe someone could use it. I've browsed hundreds photos on Google looking at dozens of different cars and I've struck out. At one time 10 years ago I though it was from a Hudson, but I haven't been able to verify that. It also looks similar to the front fender side trim of a 65 Plymouth Fury but its too tall. It's in excellent shape with no dings. It's approximately 19.25 inches long and 3.25 inches tall. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Dan

  5. Could someone who has stainless steel trim rings for a postwar Chrysler (mine is a '48 Windsor Sedan) help me? I'm trying to find trim rings for my driver, but I find the people on eBay often are not sure what they have. I need to know the dimensions of the trim rings that fit my 15" wheels ( 7.60x15 tires) with 11" hub caps (in other words, I need the outer diameter of the trim ring and the diameter of the center opening where the hubcap goes). I know Chrysler made a 10" hubcap because I have one (came with the car) though it doesn't fit anything I have. I'm guessing there are Chrysler trim rings out there that fit some wheel (14"?) with a 10" hubcap. I do not want to pay money for what will not fit. I see on eBay a set of trim rings the guy thinks fit a postwar Chrysler, but he descibes them as 15" outside diameter and 9 3/4" inside opening. My 15" wheels are actually about 16 3/8" in diameter, so I'm guessing these are for a smaller wheel and a smaller hubcap ( maybe the 10"). I am only guessing, though, because I do not have a trim ring to measure. Could someone actually measure their 15" wheel's stainless steel trim rings outside diameter and inside opening?
  6. Located in Los Angeles. PM or Email me. A lot of these parts will also work on other similar '60 GM model cars (chevrolet, oldsmobile, pontiac). 1960 Buick LeSabre or Invicta two (2) door hard top window stainless molding, windshield and rear window top trim, interior rear window trim, and hood chrome spear. Chrome trim is in good driver quality condition with minor dings on some of the pieces only. No pitting and chrome will clean up very well and shine! Everything pictured is included in the sale. I would prefer to sell all together, but will consider parting out. 1960 Buick Le Sabre, Invicta, Electra and Electra225 windshield wiper assembly. These came off a 2 door hardtop. No Pitting. Chrome and wiper arms are in good condition. Some parts may also work on other GM model cars of the same body style. If you have any questions please PM or email. Thanks!
  7. Anybody have any idea what this trim belongs to? 75 plus inches..rocker panel? three pieces of it in brown paper numbers or clues whatsoever. Thank you, Bill Wheatley, NY
