Can you name the part?

Does anyone know where I can get this part? Would the best place be a scrap yard or can I order the part new? Does it come straight and do I have to bend it? I have a 1958 22' Flying Cloud. The "trim" measurments are 7' 1/2" long, 2" wide, 1/2 flanges. As you can see, I need one for the road side. The one shown is on the curb side. They are mirror images of eachother.

Thanks for your help.

I'd think about getting a new one made. In that regard, you are very lucky! The part looks as though it's made of readily available angle iron or mild steel and you have a template, be it a mirror, to make a new one.

If it's load bearing and you want to make a splash, get two new ones made out of stainless steel.

Take your existing piece to a good machine shop. They can make one for you.

I think he is referirng to the aluminum belly belt rather than the upright steel piece. I would suggest finding straight aluminum piece with proper thickness and then having a heating and ventalation guy bend the flange into it with his brake and then just wrapping around the trailer.

It's a little more complex than that. As I recall, it's a trim piece with angles bent into the top and bottom. I haven't seen one in a couple of years, but I seem to recall that it's not just a flat bar.

A good machine shop will have the proper thickness stock aluminum, the equipment to bend the trim edges, and to roll the piece at the proper angle.

85MH325 is correct ,that beltline aluminum piece has to have the right
curvature to it and follow the contour of the body. It can be done by a
metal shop that works with aluminum ,it would be good for them to have the trailer at the shop for a good fit as it will be neede to check the fit up of the new piece .Luckily it is a smooth piece,as the beltline on my 60 trdwnd has a 1/4
groove machined in the center ,so it would be difficult to duplicate ,not
impossible though Im sure.

good luck
