Hi Guys.

I have an ED Futura and its chrome strip on the mouldings is all faded/peeled/discoloured, and i'd like to replace it.

I measured it and its about 17mm high, and I'd probably need about 10m or so I'd say.

Whos replaced theirs with aftermarket Mouldings before? and where did you get it from?

Id like to keep it as original looking as possible.

Cheers :)

Could try Supercheap or Autobarn, it is getting hard to buy though and it will only be if they have old stock laying around.
My son had to ring around everywhere to get a couple of rolls for his car with Bendigo the furthest he had to go to get a roll, so ring the stores first before you waste your time.

Check out Banarcus ED wagon build thread - IIRC he redid those chrome strips.
