Bronze Metal Trim in 72 Tradewind

I had the front wood panel cut down when I put in the new fridge
So we tried to cut the old bronze metal edge trim but it didn't look good.
I've looked at the product from Brunner Enterprises:

C21006; for 1/4 in. 5/8x 3/8x 1/16 - Extruded Aluminum Channel - Aluminum angle, Aluminum tube, Aluminum extrusions, Anodized aluminum, Aluminum pipe, Aluminum channel, Extruded Aluminum angle, brunner enterprises, Aluminum bar, aluminum rod, aluminu

but they don't have the same bronze. Anybody got another solution, or used the Brunner metal trim?

It's was obsolete many years ago.

However, brown is still available.

Look around for an anodizing service...I have used them for old airplane parts. Also look at the possibilities of using a powder coat...there you have a choice of coloring and readily available. I am sure you can find a match.

Bronze Metal Trim on 72 TradeWind

I'm still looking for about 8' of the Bronze edge trim used on the 72 models.
It is 1/4" inside dimension and 3/4" long on the outside. Closest I've fount is from Brunner Enterprises but haven't found anything Bronze. Any help?

this stuff....

Does this look like the trim you want. I may have a lead on some for you if so. Personally I can't tell if this is bronze... you may be able to. This is a 72 Overlander.

Bronze Metal Trim

Looks like the same stuff. The right picture that shows the trim over the refridge is basically the same curve I am trying to replace. When I put a new fridge in I had the curve changed and cut back a few inches to open up the area. My carpenter took hack saw to it and butchered it up pretty badly.

I'll let you know if the deal I'm working on flies. It may take a week or so. We would have no need for any of that style trim....

Bronze trim

Thanks, just let me know if it's available and the cost. I hate to change out to something different as this is right by the door and wouldn't match the rest of the trailer.
