Austin 16/6 Alloy trim around the sunroof

Post by Paul 1964 »

The time has come in my restoration to look at the sunroof.
Most of it is fairly easy but the alloy trim has me stumped my usual suppliers don't have anything in quite the correct section.
So If anyone has an old one they would like to sell let me know.
Or do you know where the correct section can be bought.
While were at it should it be painted or plain alloy.

Few years past, did you find anything?

Hard to think of anything to suggest, other than getting some another section, or some plan d-section and machining and or welding to fabricate what is needed.

Sounds mad but as its ali you might even be able have someone CNC machine it from billet rod for less than you might think.
