Ive got all the chrome strips replaced on my car when i got it re-painted and the panel beater had a hard time finding them and i think i was lucky. you may have to end up getting someone to custom make them for you as your right saying they are obselete. :x

Troyman found a local bloke here in Sydney that does the chrome strip for the front and rear bars. Unfortunately, there appears to be no replacement for the side strips. Check his build thread in the Garage.

I have heard of some people sticking the new bumber chrome strips on top of the exisiting side chrome. That might work for you.

In my case, I am going to pull all the plastic and chrome off, and paint the strips in a bright aluminium colour.

Cheers
BenJ

Where are you located?

There is a place in Croydon, Melbourne where i got the chrome bumper inserts, and he had replacement chrome stick on stuff for the sides. If you look closely at your sides, the chrome is a stick on that peels off. I had to peel all mine off before he would stick the new stuff on for me... but it looked tops when it was done.

I ended up buying a 25 metre roll of the bumper insert, did my EA, my uncles ED and sold the rest to a member here... cant remember who now.

Cheers,

Dodd

There is a way to replace the chrome on the side molds on the EB/ED not sure if its cheap.

You need to sand the side molds clean, then use prepsol and use the chrome from a sticker or sign writing place, use the thin chrome vinyl, i have seen it done a few times if you use the thin vinyl not the thick stuff and prep it well it will stick on for a long time.

i have 2 metres of Genuine Ford EL chrome strip sitting in my bedroom :) but i guess that dosent help you lol.

but back on topic, if i may slightly highjack the thread for a minute, can you still buy front and rear bar mouldings/inserts? ie. EL Ghia chrome strip part that goes in the rear bumper.
