Anyone with connections at Dennis Carpenter?

Noticed they are selling the metal roof skin (B6C-8150202-A) for a 56 and now they have listings for Roof lip filler panel (B6C-8101020) and Roof drip rail set (B6C-8151724). The last two doesn't have a photo available at this time. Called and the individual there didn't have a photo either. My hope is the drip rail is the actual metal drip rail (replacement/repair piece) and not the decorative drip rail trim. So, does anyone have internal Dennis Carpenter connections that can verify this? It looks like the drip rail part which ever one it is will not be available until October 2018 time frame anyway.

I googled the part number of the drip rail set and found this ad from Mid-Fifty with the explanation you're looking for. Hope this helps.

In numerous discussions that I had with Pat Ford from DC, he has stated that all sections of the 56 cab that DC was producing would be available for sale individually at some future date. What was driving the date was the production line and when they could finish enough of the full cabs to comfortably sell components. To my knowledge NO ONE is selling stainless trim in the aftermarket...too much tooling to justify the cost.

Ok, checking back on DC web site they have a picture of the new 56 roof repair products. It looks like the roof filler panels are in stock (which I don't need) and the drip rail replacement parts will not be available until later this year. Fingers crossed! Now, I need to see if they will have some available along with new roof skin at the Supernationals in Pigeon Forge this October to save the shipping cost!
