I bought 1.1/2" trim side moulding 2 months ago looks okay but have not in stalled it yet.

I remove the old 3.3/8" stuff like you have and shxt canned it. So first got to fill all those rivet holes before predrilling for the new trim.

I don't think the anodizing coating is as "thick" as the old oem days when first made tho.
Just my.02cents
