Looking for trim spears for a MS 65. These are the holes for the bottom spears. Also need the short er ones for the upper part of the door. Thanks

Is there any trim left on it? The 65s had two types of trim, either flat bar stock or rolled stainless.

There is some trim and it is the rolled stainless.

If anyone has the flat bar stock trim I would really like to see a picture of it!

Thanks

Here is the flat style.

Thanks Matt. I appreciate your going to the effort to help me! Can you tell me the width and thickness of the trim?

Also watching as the flat style should be easier to make.
Thanks Matt and Marshall...

I should have two new pieces of the 3/8" half round in a couple of days and will post pictures of them with some of the original trim.

I made some flat bar upper trim for my pump.

Very nice Matt! How to you plan on attaching them to your pump? I'm sure the use of the flat stock is much cheaper that the 3/8" half round trim, particularly if a full set needs to be made.

I am going to try and put holes in the backside. That is how the originals are held. Or maybe glue. I have another pump I made trim for and double side taped them.

Attached are photos of the trim piece (on the left) that I had McMillan Rod and Custom make. They made two 9-1/2" pieces with two studs. Total cost, with shipping, was $70.40. They look pretty good when compared to an original piece, with the exception of the tips, which are a little more pointed that the original. I doubt anyone would notice the difference, particularly when they are on the bottom of an unrestored pump.

Nice!!! and the price seams cheap for the amount of time to do them. I am sure they did them faster than I did mine.

Pleased with the turn around time which took a little more than a week.
