Sliding Cabinet Trim

Hi, I have a 1963 Tradewind that Im currently restoring. Ive gotten a great deal of the project done. Im however having trouble with the trim that is used for the sliding overhead cabinets. I cant find any. The trim that was in there is broken and in pieces. I tried checking several local places (cabinet shops, home depot, lowes) those sorta places and I got the same head scratching responses. So I contact some local RV places that I used to restore some items in the airstream. They all said That the funky trim is no longer available. . . so please someone help? maybe an online place that may sell somthing similar? thanks

here is a photo of the current trim I have.

Not sure this will work but try and see.

Looks like something you would find at a woodworking website.

Good luck.

I've been having the same problem with locating some for my sliding cabinet doors too. Yours looks to be plactic whereas mine's aluminum. I need a piece that's 72 1/2" long. Been looking for 5 years.

Eyeketch - you might try They have all sorts of items in plastic, metal too, just not what I need in aluminum. Best of luck and let us know if you find any.
