Where can I find another one?

Round two of polishing has begun, and I'm removing damaged items so that I can polish underneath and have a shinier finished product.

Here are two pieces removed that I think are really too messed up to reattach. Any ideas on how to refurbish or good sources to replace the parts?

The last pic is how they were on the trailer.

Thanks!

Those are not Airstream parts.

Perhaps those brackets were used for tire shades.

It's hard to say. There are no photos in your post.

I see all pictures in both posts. The long, thin item looks like a drip guard over a furnace (?) exhaust. The other thing is a mystery to me.

Thanks for confirming that they're visible. One is a door stop; the other is the drip edge (not sure official name) above the old furnace vent.

Hope you find the replacements you want.

If that proves impossible, you might try to rehab the ones you have. The door stop could be much improved with a little polish and replacing the rubber stops.

Judicious taps with a hammer against a dolly of some sort might straighten the drip rail to a usable condition.

Best of luck.

Thanks. I feel like I have to do something about that area. Both pieces looked really bad, and I wasn't able to properly polish that area with them in place. Then, when I reminded the drip rail...wow, really bad! This is the result of a lot of scrubbing with a "goof off" type stuff and 4 passes with the coarsest Nuvite compound.

I've got more shining to do there and hopefully I'll have the new or refurbed parts ready to go back on.
