Bronze Edge Metal Trim 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?

same problem

RichHog, I can't be any help, but I sympathize with you! We have the same problem in our 72 Safari. There is some previous damage to the ceiling between the upper cabinent and the front sofa. So PO just patched it the "best he/she could" (read: awful looking!!) and screwed a couple of extra screws in the trim to attach it to the ceiling. Looks awful. I will be watching this thread to see if someone has any ideas! Thanks for posting the question....

Bronze Edge trim on 72 Tradewind

There had to be a lot of the metal trim used so hopefully someone has some. I need about 9' of it. The other metal supplier has the right size trim but no bronze

Couldn't you just spray paint it the correct color using a metal paint?

What are they selling the 12ft lengths for?

Bronze Metal Trim on 72 TradeWind

I'm still looking for bronze edge trim that goes along the edge of the panels, it's inside diameter is 1/4" and outer lengths is 3/4". I need about 8' of it. Have found other makes from Brunner Enterprises but nobody has a matching Bronze.

It's the bronze trim on the left panel above the fridge.

You might try outwater plastic and get a clear cap spray it in the in side so it can not be rubbed off we have had good luck with the new plastic paint that is out there here is the link to them iI am not sure of the panel size 5/8 or 3/4

Outwater Plastics - 2009 Master Catalog - page 50

Good luck

Have you tried calling Colaws salvage? They seem to have a varied inventory of parts.
