Author Topic: Where do you get the Aluminum Molding for covering the seams?  (Read 3171 times)

« on: February 05, 2008, 10:57:34 AM »

I have googled, MAK search and Help. Could not find what I am looking for in aluminum trim moulding. I want to replace the trim that goes between the side panels on upper and lower. I would rather not have a plastic insert. Would like to find one that is similar to a half round with ridges on under side to go over rivets. Any suggestions on what is best?

Thanks in advance.

Paul,

Maybe something like what MCI used on the -8's and -9's right under the windows would work.  It's a long section of molding that's maybe 1-3/4" wide and maybe 1/4-3/8" or so tall (this is from memory so the dimensions may be off).  Perhaps somebody who removed it from their MCI would have it, or most parts buses would, too, I'm sure.  This is definitely not half round, but might still work for you.

David,

Thanks for the information. The width is about what I need, no less than 1 1/12".

Pete,

I checked their web site, didn't find what I need. I'll have to give them a call. The 20' length is perfect, as that is what the old stuff was.

Thanks for the help,

Paul

Cliff,I have a copy of IBP's pdf if you would like it,GM's are all most obsolete on it allthough they still make the panels for them they are pretty much a special order thing,Kathy and I were there a few weeks ago and Steve says there is just not much call for gm's anymore which makes sense,let me know if you want it and I will get it to you     Mike

They have aluminum rub rail with 1/8" lip (over rivet) to screw on and snap vinyl trim to cover...made for RV.

It good idea to leave some gap on bottom of rub rail for moisture relief.

McMaster has some really  nice stuff:

go to http://www.mcmaster.com/ and type "aluminum moulding" into their search engine, or go to page 3659 in their online catalog

I just glue it on with Sikaflex.... works great!

Gary....You.... and I know that Sikaflex is great stuff.

But user beware of, depending on the product:   expiration date...prep.....work time (open time).... cleanup materials....and $$.

It really is an exceptional product.  SIKAUSA.Com  Steve Padgett has all the answers.    Smiley

I agree with rcbishop....great stuff and Steve in USA office Madison Height, MI (my former home town) is the guy talk to before you use it. The main thing it cure with humidity...so set-up time is important to do it quickly. After surface is clean & prep...use tape as your guide while one man guide the trim on while you apply before it.

I didn't bother to mention this method because it require more preparation work but it worth it.
