Bumper molding

Hey all! Just bought Aerostar #5! Obviously, bumpers are an issue. I found a complete bumper without molding, however, mine needs the molding. Does anyone know can body shops just add molding? These are being restored.. so I prefer the original bumper.. and as we all know, bumper covers are nearly impossible to find!

The stock moldings have foam sticky-back and clips on the ends to keep them attached to the bumper. It's possible to install generic sticky moldings to those recesses of the bumpers, and maybe use screws from the back side to hold them in to prevent them from popping out.

if you mean the chromed insert, go to any auto parts and buy the 1/4" chromed molding, same thing as the factory part.

Clean the channel with a clean rag wet with alcohol or thinner before applying it, it will stick real good.

I have a rear bumper cover for a shorty, the flexible type, not the hard plastic one that cracks easily. I have sanded it and primed it. Can be painted any color. Undamaged. Anybody needs one, contact me.
