ALUMINUM FIN MOULDING

We are now offering the Aluminum mouldings for the Amphicar. The
posting on February 28 by Amphiguru regarding his stainless steel
mouldings made me decide to go ahead with a project which was started
a while back.

These are the "thin style" profile and we have made them for the
fins,headlights, hood and tail lights. They have the grooves on the
inside to help the glue adhere. It seems to me that since aluminum
fin mouldings came on our cars that replacements should be available.

To make a long story short, the extruded metal had to be annealed,
formed, hand fitted to an actual Amphicar, re-hardened, polished and
then bright-dip anodized. We have about 100 pieces in the final
stages and are about to start additional runs. You can buy any number
of the 7 different pieces.
Please take a look at: http://amphicarparts.com/ for pictures and
pricing.
Or, e-mail me at amphicarparts@earthlink.net.

Ed -
There were 2 distinct styles of moldings. Some af the later cars had a
thick style molding. The fin molding when installed was as thick as
the fin itself. The headlight eyebrows are a "T" shape rather than
the "V" of the thin style. I have put some in the photos section.
