Stainless Steel Drip Rails

Does anyone know of a good source for the Stainless Steel Drip Rails that go along the top of the drivers and passengers side window? Mine aren't in bad shape, but they do have "dings" in them, and look slightly tweaked where they bend.

Has anyone tried pounding the rails out, or is that a job for a specialist. I don't need the car showroom quality, but if I could find some decent rails at a fair price, I would replace them.

Regards,
Robert

Hi Robert,
The reproduction molding are not the best. I would recommend having yours restored by a pro. It is a lot tougher than you would think. Ask me how I know.

I hate those confounded things!! I have a vinyl top which only exacerbates the situation! Mine are "ok" at best. A couple dings. Unless they are really ratty, I would leave them alone.

Repro or not one thing you must be carful not to get too much paint on the base, it can make them realy tough to get on.
