Get ahold of one of our vendors. Cali Corvairs if you are west of the mighty Mississippi or the Ranch if you are east of it.

But Mark you can't hold onto everything that doesn't sell and finally your spouse and heirs has to throw it in trash. They won't know that it will be valuable to someone in 20 years and they should keep it just in case.

Real life. Make decision and move on. Too bad that someone needs it a few years later

In this case the saying "that will buff right out" is very true, or blindingly true.

I am not knowledgeable on the trim itself, but I think I have a set for a LM Vert that is for sale, if it is needed. I will have to look for it.

They are seamed at that point. Very poor decision/design.
