Question Belt Line Trim Needed For 1956 F.C

I am trying to locate the belt line trim for my 1956 Flying Cloud. I have just finished replacing all of the outside sheet metal and the trim is the only thing left to replace, but I can't locate it. The orginial trim is
6061-0 QQA-327 the only thing I can find is 6063 T52 which is to thick and the side walls are 1 inch high. The metal shop I went to is a huge place, nation wide,and they are saying they can't get it, but their sure it can still be bought. The orginial trim is 2 wide with a 1/2 side wall a rolled edge and is less the 1/16 thickness. I"m not sure if Airstream rolled this material out, or if it was milled.
I talked to a guy from CA last year here in Oregon that had just replaced his trim, but I did not get the details.
Does anyone know were this materiall can be purchased or if it was milled.
Andy (Inland RV) I know you got to know.
Looking for any help or direction.

You are about 45 years late in your request.

All that is available, is the currect style belt line and rub rail moldings.

Thanks Andy, Is this something that Inland RV sells? Is it close to the same size? I had a feeling you would have the answer.
