1993 Roadmaster Wagon Faux Wood Trim


Recommended Posts

Every 1991-1993 Roadmaster Station Wagon I have seen has the same issue.  I just peeled mine off.  Not the best solution but it looks better than the peeling.  Nice car, by the way.  I like the color, it is not that common.

The Impala SS Forum is very active and includes all GM B-Body cars. Here is a link to the wagon section: https://www.impalassforum.com/forums/wagons.21/

You should be able to find information there or a replacement part in the general Pats section.

 

The moldings are aluminum. One owner of a modified car polished his. I have seen it in person and it is stunning.

The clear is peeling off the rear tailgate top trim piece. Any suggestions how to refinish? It is just the top molding not the whole panel. Thanks

 

How fussy are you?

-  You could strip and install new DI-NOC film on the tailgate top trim piece completely. DI-NOC, a 3M trademarked product, was used on Buicks for many years, first in 1953, on the Roadmaster's lower instrument and front door trim panels. A detailer or detail shop that knows how to install the latest automotive vinyl wraps might be someone to contact;

-  Find an experienced artist or one who does pin striping to faux-paint the wood-grained look to just the damaged areas; or

-  Go to Wally World and find some cheapo shelf-liner stickum paper, prep the trim piece, install the paper, spray a clear coat over it and stand back and admire it. You might have to settle for a complimentary lighter or darker wood-grained color.

The way a Roadmaster SHOULD look, regardless of what year it is!!!  Shiny stuff on the outside is their trademark.

In the later years of production, those trim pieces were not wood grained, they were a solid color.  Much easier to paint them a solid color.

You might also want to get some opinions from the guys on the GM Longroof Forum.  Just Google it.  Dedicated to the Buick Roadmaster Estate Wagons, the Chevrolet Caprice Wagons, and the Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Wagons built from 1991 through 1996.
