Yes, the cost factor for original trim plus the cost of having it repaired and polished was not in my budget. That combined with even being able to find it for our wagons.My first Nova was a 65 wagon and someone had removed the side trim when i got it. I always wished for some original side trim but my budget left me with some of the stick on side trim from Auto Zone.
Hi WaxDave, I don’t believe anyone repops it for our wagons unfortunately. I ended up modifying some fairly higher grade stick on stuff and it looks pretty good. If you follow all of 3m’s installation guidelines, it is attached extremely well. Pretty much all newer cars have the side trim attached the same way so I figured it would be fine.
Thanks WaxDave, you are very fortunate to have found some trim. I had the drip rail trim refurbished and polished locally. Stay healthy.You did a great job on yours then, I did find some reasonably priced that had already been restored. Lucky I guess? I just started looking early on in my build, so I had plenty of time to look and patience paid off.
