Hi,
My first port of call for stuff like this Martin at Caprigear. As you probably know, it's hard to find these unpainted trims in good condition, so If Martin can't help, did you know that these are being reproduced?

I don't have any good ones in stock at the moment. The reproduction ones are a really good item but I don't always keep them in stock as I find people wont pay the asking price and I can't afford to keep stuff just gathering dust on my shelves.
If there was genuine interest then I would stock them but in the past I have struggled with them. Once I've shipped them in and paid all the fees and V.A.T there's only a very small profit and unless they sell quickly there's no point in having them.
It's a similar case with a lot of the new reproduction items, Indicators, bumper end caps, over riders. They're all excellent well made products but owners begrudge paying the prices so I don't generally keep them in just to hang around.
