    LOL!!

    I was just thinking that perhaps my moulding parts could be used to CNC new ones.
    Wonderful idea! Trick is, getting them off untweaked and in one piece.

    Here are a couple of previous posts on reproducing unatainium. If sals54 could use his example to create a pattern maybe ST2DE5 could use it to cast a replacement with help of a friend or two.

    Hope this helps.

    Well... I for one like the look of the car without the fins as much as with. In fact, I was considering pulling them off Bess as well. Still... If one has gone to the trouble to put them (the fins that is) back together, might as well put them on. Still, when you put them on is entirely up to you. I'd box them up good and safe, along with the trim I do have, and put some sealer in the holes for now, then drive the car as is. But then, my ego can survive a car that isn't exactly perfect. It's highly likely that you will find the pieces later. In fact, you can even paint over urthane sealer. Don't weld over the holes. Burning bridges is never a wise proposition.

    The cap on the front is the one I need for the drivers side. In the book it is 2504-148-2 1312671

    As you can see, the trim at the base of the fin is painted. The cap at the front of the fin is chromed and painted.

    Yep, every time I've been driving a car that's missing something someone has turned up & said "I've gotta friend who has that laying, I'll ask him 'bout it if you want!" or something similar!

    Finishing the car and leaving the places for the trim makes sense. After you are driving the car, someone will notice the missing pieces and tell you about some that are available.
    Years ago, when I was looking for an upper grille bar for my 52, I had just about given up hope. Then one day a member found a partial dealers stock that had an NOS 52 grille. You just never know.

    That's where artistry comes into play.

    How do you make a mold out of something you don't have? The car was hit in the left rear and the fin and chrome piece were broke all to pieces. I repaired the fin already.

    Make something up. Modeling clay, carve a plaster mold, make the part out of fiberglass, have it faux chrome painted.
