Need coverings for tops of Blinds

Hey yall!

I ordered some polished aluminum blinds from that were made custom for all of the windows in my '78 sovereign. They went in great and look awesome, and the folks are very easy to work with if anyone is looking for a vendor.

I am now looking for some kind of covering for the top of the blind, because you can see the guts of the blinds through the tops of the frame due to the curvature of the walls in the AS. Does anyone know where you can get aluminum or stainless coverings for these like the ones in newer airstreams? Has anyone done something different to cover the tops of the blinds instead?

Stream on!

I placed wood wedges between the mounting surface so the tops were almost parallel to the floor. Then I shaped a strip of pine (sold as lattice) like an aircraft wing, varnished in clear and mounted on top with double faced tape.
