59 18'er Cabinet refurb

I'm refurbing the existing cabinets/closets shown attached pics. The curved extruded aluminum trim/fastening piece also shown in attached pics seems to be the best way to re-attach the curved wall of the closet to the wall. I can see using any straight aluminum angle to attach straight sections and hide it on the inside however for the curved portions I want to find some new aluminum trim to fasten and look good.

Any ideas for finding this type of thing? I might have to fabricate something on the inside and caulk the intersection of closet wall to aluminum wall of the airstream?

Either way it's getting fun!

Hi Jeph ~

Looking good on your progress. For the 'h' shaped aluminum extrusion, try Brunner. Nor sure if the exact size matches what you have but it should be very close.

F125; for 1/8 in. - Aluminum Corners, F, h, H, T and Z - Brunner - aluminum channel, extruded aluminum angle, anodized aluminum shapes, aluminum pipe, bar, tube, square tubing connector,aluminum channel, extruded aluminum angle, anodized aluminum sha

Best of luck.
