Is anyone making a replacement drip rail over the Drivers door on a Nomad (56). I see them for Sedans and Hardtops, but don't know if either of them are interchangeable.

Thanks, The pieces I am needing are the pieces on the body that those ss pieces clip over. The steel pieces on mine are partially rusted away.
I have found some for hardtops and some for sedans, just don't know if there are some available specifically for Nomads. I suppose I may have to get one of them and modify to fit.

I just found a pair from H & H Classic parts and they specifically say 55-57 Nomad. The others didn't call out specific for a Nomad.

Be sure to trial fit your S/S trim pieces, they are difficult to install and if the body rail isn’t just right the S/S won’t go on. I made my body rails when repairing mine and was happy with how they came out, but spent a lot of time tweaking then to get the S/S to snap over the body rail when installing them.

I agree. After looking at how much damage is there and the fact that it will be covered, I think that we will just try to do a little repair. We definitely will have the s/s piece there for reference.
