Any idea where to find replacement wheel well trim, or any way to make your own replacements?

Yeah, mine is the same way. I have all 4, but they're scraped to crap and I don't know if there's any hope of reconditioning them, or any way to make my own. It doesn't seem that hard as they are just straight pieces of metal bent to the contour of the wheel well, but I can't find any place that sells the metal ones. Advanced Auto sells the cheap plastic mold ones, but they're cheesy.

My Monte Carlo has the cheap stick on stuff, it was on it when I got it. IMO, it don't look bad. Think about it...it won't corrode, won't tarnish, won't dent, and water won't lay between the molding and the sheet metal to cause rust. Somthin' to think 'bout...
