I'm looking for the running board stainless for a '46 G5 Champion 2 door. I had a full set out to be reworked and it is somehow "lost and can't be found" by Starlight Stainless in Georgia after a year to get done. I need all eight pieces of the trim. I am also looking for the lower window stainless trim pieces as I have the curved uppers already. Any help would be appreiciated. Thanks.

Do you have a photo of the stuff. I have many stainless pieces that I can not identify.

The trim is about 3-4 inches tall with 3 horizontal ridges all the way down the entire length of the pieces. If anyone has these pieces out there, I'll buy them for him regardless of what it costs. I know they're rare.

Here's a pic that Dick Quinn posted a while ago.

Those are rare. Some of the earliest 'curb feelers'...

I have some unidendified rocker mouldings not like these. I'll get a pic and maybe someone can ID them.

Matt, remember the 41 president coupe barn find in Iowa? The one with the big horns. It had 42/46 rocker trim and the owner is looking for 41 trim. I'm sure he will sell the 42 rocker trim. The length will be different but could be shortened to fit the champion.

I do not have these types of moldings.

Thanks Rex. I'll try to get ahold of Niall.

Here are the some pics I took after taking them off the car. I don't have a full length one of the door runner though.
