My headliner is split. This line of discussion is sounding intimidating but oddly appealing. Am I nuts?

Brad
I have heard of chop shops before but this takes that to a whole new level.........an Airstream convertible,....Weld the rear axle on and fire up the 454 and she should get at least 25mpg.

It did cross my mind that at the end of the Mistress's life the scrap value will be off the scale. Hopefully a long, long, long way off.

I will be investigating the molding as I have a number of suppliers. I'll let you know what I find.

Cheers

Great info Brad!

Well the rain arrived before I got to do more...
Study study this week as I have an exam on Monday!
My head feels like its gonna pop, if I dont take a break for 5 mins!!

When you mentioned the Moulding, are you talking about this one that runs across the extrusion between the walls and front cap?
Cos mine is made of cheese pringles too it seems..
Note cracks..


Here is my front cap and another crack closest to camera... someone drilled the end already, and tried superglue!
Fail.


Here is a quick shot I took of the rear lamp casting and the dent I pulled out...
Need to do a neater job of the caulking when I am done polishing!


I got these two tools from HF that might help!

Yep that's the molding in question. I've not spent a lot of effort trying to find a replacement yet. One of these days I'll get serious about finding something.

The dent definitely looks better. Got a few on the 410 that needs to be worked on.

Not sure if this is the trim strip but it looks similar.
Try Ebay.com item 140337125394. I wont be trying it first due to the huge cost of shipping to the UK. Let me know if it works and I'll get some for the suitcase next time I'm in the States

Interesting... thanks Del!

Hey, does anyone know if this Coleman interior AC shroud will fit the earlier units?
Coleman 9330E715...
Odd thing as well... if you search that part number, you get two different pictures...
This one...


And this one...

Here it says it replaces Coleman # 63122
But I cant figure it out...

Coleman 9330E715 ADB White Trailer Camper RV


Maybe someone can tell me what AC units were fitted in 1984 and I can work from there...
Here is what I have and need to replace... too brittle to fix.

It's close but I don't think it is the same thing. The stuff I removed from the Argosy and the 345 curves more on the edges and sort of clips over the edges aluminum rail.

It would be nice to see a better profile or cross section image of this trim.

If I can remember I'll try and find a salvageable piece of trim and get a good picture of it.

Thanks!

Brad

Attached is a cross sectional picture of a broken piece of trim out of my Argosy. The right edge has the correct profile, the left edge broke trying to remove it. The plastic is extremely brittle and pretty much disintegrates when touch it.

It measures 13/16" wide outside edge to outside edge.

Brad, is that the trim where the inside of the main ceiling skin meets the inside edge of the end caps?

if it is, the part is called "end liner trim", but I'm not finding a part # for it?

(ours is brittle, too.)

Yes, that's where it came from. I just did a bunch of googling looking for end liner trim and didn't come up with anything.

The trim in the 86 345 was extremely brittle as well so I couldn't salvage anything there
