I have a 54 Stude Regal Commander 2 dr ht. Need to replace roof drip mouldings, as mine were ruined in shipping to vendor to have restored. (Had some dents and needed polishing) What other years fit and does anyone have set to sell?

If you are going to be at the Peterson on the 19 I could bring some.

What is the Peterson? on the 19? I live in Michigan, but would be willing to travel some for the parts to help finish my car.

It is on Wilshire Blvd. in West L.A. to ship back to Mich. would cost more than they are worth. If you were out here I would just give them to you I would be ashamed to ask any money for them since they are dull and removed from a car and would have to be polished and re-rolled on the roof line and that is a tricky job.

There were guys called trim rollers that did nothing but install trim. It has to be put on one side and then rolled to snap on the other. Used trim will be scratched, dull, distorted, even dinged by age and removal if the person is not careful it takes a real pro to straighten and re install.

Are there any trim rollers in the Midwest area I could get the mouldings and have them put on? This is one of the last things I need to do to complete the project.
