Since you are in Canada, I'd check with Ross at Sports Imports. Her restores trim as well I believe.

Thanks for the quick response. Ross suggested I check thru this forum and look elsewhere on line. Not sure if he doesn’t have a complete set but I’ll check with him on Monday when I see him. Thanks again.

the nice thing about the newer moulding is that it is much easier to fix, earlier is more complicated.

Thanks very much Pat - another great option!

Being new to the 311 world, this website and the “family” it represents is fantastic! While we are already really enjoying our Roadster, this family connection will only make the experience that much better!

Forgot I had a picture...It came off an early car but I believe they used it again later in production as well....I am sure someone can give us a history lesson.

That is for 67 and earlier. It is the "concave" Style. 67.5 and later have the Convex style.
They are interchangeable as far as fit, just a matter of how true to original you want your Roadster to be.

I may have 5 of the six pieces, mostly new or very good condition. If memory serves me right, I am missing one price.
On vacation now so I'll have to get back to you later in the week.

Thanks to everyone for your suggestions and offers. I went to see Ross at Sports Imports today and he will supply a reconditioned set when he paints the car later this year.

You’ve all made our first experience on 311S.org an excellent one.

Thanks to all
