S3 hood tray aluminum trim and binding screws

PostPost by: rcombs » Tue Apr 16, 2019 5:47 pm

Has anyone had any luck at finding replacements for the hood tray trim and binding screws?

My trim is pretty rough and has had a bunch of extra holes drilled into it. I have been looking on the internet and haven't found anything yet.

The same with the binding screws. The ones I have found don't look anything like the originals.

Thanks,
Rick

Sue Miller sells both these items, I believe. They are in her catalogue.

Back 30 years more or less, no one made many parts like this, so I made up a jig to hold them to put in the slot and made a set out of 316 SS bar stock. They are still on my SS dhc.

I think the fasteners are called "twinfasts"
