Ceiling trim - 1969

I had to gain access to the A/C lower unit and started to take off the trim that exposes the rivets on the ceiling. Being of a sound mind I placed these antique pieces of plastic to the side for safe keeping, who would have thought anything would happen to them. I finish my work on the A/C and went to get the trim and found it strewn about the yard, the children thought they were cool things to play with and broke them in many peices. Got to love kids
Does anyone know where I can get replacements?

Exactly what pieces are you looking for? Have any pics? Even pics of broken pieces might help.

Kids are great - especially when they belong to someone else!

Sorry this has taken so long, between AC issues and the septic I haven't had time until this morning.
So, again does anyone know where I can get the replacement trim.
See attached pictures.

We did a lot of searching when we did he ceiling on our 69 tradewind and found nothing, so it sits with little cracks, yellowed and all on our ceiling. If you do find a solution please post the source, we'd definately upgrade the same trim.

Hello fellow 69ers. Gary, I just went out and looked at that ceiling trim. I hadn't realized it was the same as the three pieces in the bathroom. There is two short pieces on both sides of the medicine cabinet and one larger piece goes from tub to ceiling. When I gutted the bathroom this trim was so brittle. I had to take duck tape and reinforce the back where end pieces were cracked. Then I had spray painted it a tope (sp) color so it looks new. Maybe you can take these three pieces to complete your longer piece. If your long pieces are messed up, maybe they can be cut to fit in someone's bathroom where they are missing these three pieces. Just food for thought.
