Any idea on the pricing for these? Paddock's website doesn't show anything for them.

Mine are plastic, and they've seen better days. It kinda sucks since no one makes the stainless window trim, and when you come across them you'd be lucky if they were in the $300 range. I'm contemplating making some myself for that price. Exclamation

I know this guy in Canada from another site, He made a couple of custom parts for me. I wonder if he can make these trim out of billet aluminum. he made some custom tank plugs for my hydro pumps with my clubs logo engraved and a new badge to replace the Chevrolet badge that goes right above the tail lights. I'll get some measurement tomorrow and ask him.

Got these on Friday from eBay from the BAP inc. >ebay link< which was a drop shipment from The Parts Place Inc >link<. they also have the the door window sweeps and opera trim for the 73-75 and for the montes.

The opera trim is just like the OEM ones, plastic with a chrome foil. Fits very snug on the car and on the corner trim. When I mocked it up it looked like the chrome door edge, if u can find the right size u might be able to use that for a fraction of the price. her's some pics.

I replaced mine in the late 90s, and they didn't last very long. When I did the resto, I didn't put any back on.
