Looking for the following trim pieces for my '56 Imperial:
-Passenger side rear wheel well trim
-Passenger and Driver lower rear quarter trim (from behind rear wheel well to rear bumper)
-Horizontal trim above rear bumper (the one that is one piece the entire width of the car)
-"dog legs" that transition from wheel well trim to rocker trim (there are 4; front driver, front pass, rear driver, rear pass)
-Passenger and Driver rocker panel trim

I'm looking for pieces that are as straight as possible and don't have any curb rash. Any surviving clips used to attach these pieces would be great as well.

Thanks.

Hi Jon,
I have two very nice LH dogleg moldings, the RF has a light scrape in it, and the RR has metal screws holding it on. The RH parking light brow is very nice with no pitting.
