Default Front wheell opening chrome trim - '82 Cab

I have been told by both Ecklers and OPGI that no one is making replacement front chrome wheel opening trim pieces any longer. I plan on being in Arlington on the 12th to see if anyone has a solution for this plus getting some ideas for paint schemes. But, in the meantime am hoping someone on this forum might have a source for these pieces for an '82 Caballero. Look forward to seeing you guys Saturday!

Place called IPull - UPull just set an '85 that looks like it has two tone paint.

I've had the same experience looking for one. The left front on mine is the only molding that really needs to be replaced. But since re-painting is the last thing I plan to do, I'll cross that bridge when I get to it. Who knows? I might even delete the 2 tone and go solid. I like them both ways.

I lucked out a found a NOS set on ebay. Otherwise they are only available used. NOW, I'm looking for 2 tone trim for a car WITH a front spoiler.....good luck.

Two tone with chrome and a spoiler doesn’t exist. You either cut the trim or the spoiler. (Cutting the spoiler will be my plan).

Default Thanks....

Thanks to all for the replies. Majority of my chrome is in pretty good shape. Those pieces that are not, I can get from either OPGI or Ecklers. The one piece I can't get, I am going to painstakingly tap out until it looks decent, at least from a distance. I may have to have it polished out or re-chromed. I am going to check on that IPull-UPull to see what the condition is of their front wheel trim. Again, thanks guys! Hope to see you in Arlington Saturday.

Not sure since everyone seems to say no on them. I bought aftermarket ones a few years ago from "The ElCamino STORE". They had every piece of chrome trim for my 84 Conquista. Back glass, bed top, drip rail, all of it. It has been about 3 years ago. Maybe they don't any longer. But thought I would tell my story. Good luck.

I will definitely be removing my trim from the 86 Conquista when I do my front end swap for the 84 cutlass supreme
