refrigerator interior trim replacement

So I am in the middle of restoring a 58 jewel I know this the AS section but I could really use some help. I am fixing up the fridge it runs great just doesnt look the part, so it is getting cleaned up and touched up. The only problem is the trim pieces of plastic that go between the outer shell and inner part of the fridge are cracked. I look at VTS but they don't have anything like that. Does anyone know where I can get this part. I would really like to keep this vintage fridge. Thanks

I had a similar problem. I filed the crack with epoxie and repainted the inner shell with epoxie paint, it looks great

We're facing the same situation with the inside plastic liner being seriously cracked around and under the seal and sort of crumbling away. PO used an acrylic caulk around it but the door doesn't shut completely now. Just wondering how much cracking you were dealing with and what brand of epoxy you used. I don't suppose anyone has found a resource for door replacements for Dometic units. The original unit works great. Like gmwelder, we're kinda Old AS Huggers!

I looked behind the panel at the bottom of it and I believe it is an M70 b. Does that sound likely? Thanks.

Take the door off of your refrigerator at the hinges. Next apply two part epoxy to the areas where you have cracks (I used a producted called plastic weld available at local auto supply). Our problem was a large 1" crack in the bottom corner. I used duck tape to pull the crack closed until the epoxy dried. After the epoxy dried I sanded the areas that I had patched until smooth. (Used dremmel tool) I then lightly sanded the entire inner door panel and painted the entire inner door panel with white marine epoxy paint. It looks great.

Thanks seawaatty and easyride. You guys are life savers for the new folks like me. And, you make it sound easy enough that it gives me confidence to take a shot at it and think that it will work! So . . . my dilemma is whether to install the brake controller this weekend or do the 'fridge door. Maybe there's time for both!!!
