    Repop steel ones ARE the same price as originals- not cheap!

    Cast aluminum?? Damn, is that the cheapest way to do them? Need some trimming and fitting in the description makes me twitch too. I guess if there aren't anything else available in the world, but...
    How is it that a set of 32 Vick garnish mouldings are used as illustration, I must ask. What did he do, use two sets welded together to fit the long ass Vick door?? And what the hell is that inside door handle doing at the back end of the door??? How pathetic is that?

    There's a guy in the San Diego area making some nice ones out of steel. These aren't cheap but if your top is chopped, you can send him templates of your windows and he will make them to that size. Saves you the trouble of chopping your own. His web site is www.iversenoriginals.com.

    are they cast or stamped? too thin and they'd be hard to cut down and keep strait.

    Thanks for the info btw

    you're right, that's a stout amount of money. still, for how many a guy could sell I doubt I would do it for less myself.

    The aluminum ones are made from an extrusion and bent around dies really nice and cheaper than steel ones. I can get the guys number if anyone is interested.
