    No weight. And they can be boxed with adequate protection in a modest size box.

    Apparently I am mistaken about the size of the trim that is being discussed.

    Sorry, Frank S.

    Well, it's some better than we have had for the last few days but by no means a "Heat Wave.
    It can get to 112* sometimes here in the summer, BUT we do not have the high humidity of the
    rest of the country, so it's not too bad. That's why I LUV being retired. I just go back in the house and turn on the A/C.
    There is a saying for retirees;
    I don't want to
    I don't have to
    I'm not going to
    You can't make me

    I found a place that makes the 'A' pillar garnish moldings for my '79. I called and ordered a set and when they didn't show up, I called again and was told they were back-ordered until August. Well, it's September and I haven't seen them.
    Now I forget who I ordered them from. Anybody have an idea who makes them??

    I just looked through all 306 parts and NO listing. I wonder if it was them and they just discontinued it and never bothered to notify me.

    My interior is grey, but I really don't care as I can paint them with SEM.

    The repops that I have seen are thin gauge plastic and don't fit well at all. Go for Andy's originals.

    I'm going back to the classic yard, and their list looks like they got another Ranchero in. I won't know till I get there, so keep your fingers crossed.

    Hey, they're plastic, and 43 to 50 years old.
