Tip: Body trim

Along the same lines as reproduction factory graphics packages is reproduction body trim. Since many of the cars we own have lived long and not-so-charmed lives, it’s likely that much of the factory-installed brightwork has either been damaged or removed. Back in the ’80s, after most of this stuff had disappeared from dealer shelves and before it was available from the aftermarket, it was common practice to either shave bright trim or paint it. Shaving trim can still produce favorable results, but many ’60s cars look better with a little garnish. All those cars that had their grilles painted body color during the thick of the ’80s monochrome period can be “updated” by simply returning them to stock. In the late ’70s and throughout the ’80s, lots of cars also received black-painted trim, which can be a bit of an eyesore today. Maybe all you need is a new chrome hood spear, an aluminum taillight panel surround, or a set of wheel lip moldings. Little details can make a big difference.
