Being a complete idiot, I let my right fender get against the carage door exit. I have sent the trim to Trim Restorations to repair.

I'm hoping he can fix it w/o removing the tape, but not overly confident of that at this point.

I had purchased it on eBay, but it's been long enough that I can't go to history to see where I got it. Search isn't finding it at this point.

I used 3M VHB to attach it as recommended buy PVS409.

If anyone knows where I might buy some of that tape, I'd appreciate being pointed there.

Show Cars sells a pair of 62 SS Metal fender only inserts. I doubt that you can find just one side but not sure.

Thanks Paul.

INteresting, I hadn't run across the metal ones back when I was building the car.

Of course mine is a 61. Any idea if the metal ones fit a 61 Belair Btop front fender trim?

BTW...I have found several places that sell the tape with the sticky back. I use your suggestion of applying the 3M VHB double sided tape.

All factory 62, 63 and 64 SS cars came only with the metal inserts. Factory 61 cars did not come with the metal SS inserts.
Nothing wrong with adding them to side trim.

I would not use the non metal tape on my cars.
I have a friend with tape on his 62 SS - it’s turning yellow, as have other ones on 62’s SS cars I have seen locally. Plus the non metal SS tape is coming off on the edges on his 62 SS ( the 3M double sided tape should help with this problem)
