Door edge extrusions needed

My '74 Argosy has interior doors made of two sheets of thin plywood and assembled with a bronze-color aluminum extrusion around the edges.

I'm currently remodeling an area around my rear twins, and I want to create two new drawers where there were none before.
I can reclaim some vinyl-covered plywood to make the faces match, but I need some of the edge extrusion to complete the drawers.

Does anyone know where I can find some of this door edge extrusion? If I can't find any I'll have to come up with an alternate design.

I need about 12' total for my project. If anyone has any scrap doors sitting around with usable extrusion on them, I'd be happy to talk to you. A few rivet holes don't bother me.

Do you have a picture of this trim?

Sometimes you can find aluminum extrusion trim at some wood working places or they can order it. Ace Hardware near me has some odd stuff that I haven't seen at HD or Lowes. Also check with some of your local metal suppliers. Metal place I deal with has books and books of material they can order in.

There is a place called Metal Supermarkets that sells to the public. All types of extrusions and such. Pretty good pricing. I used to be in the aluminum extrusion business.

They have a location in Nashville.

Their website is...

The only problem you will have is that they will all be raw aluminum and not anodized. Krylon makes paints in many colors that simulate anodizing. I am using #1403 Dull Aluminum in my trailer.

Hope this helps.
