Anyone got any clean rust-free examples, both sides? Trying to restore this thing. Thankfully rockers themselves were spotless, but covers were rough. An extra white clip or two would be an added bonus.

I know, I know, like most things I'm looking for, I realize they're hard to find...

That is probably the harder one to find clean.
Good luck!

I'll let you know this week end when I start tearing mine down cant remember how they look right now. You mean the trim panels in front f the door? Or what I call the sill plates that go over the top of the rockers and are covered when the door is closed?

I'm looking at the long black trim pieces at the bottom of the door, from flare to flare.

As another option, if anyone has some scrap ones that are mostly trash, I'd love a piece of one to measure and price out having new metal pieces produced.

The ones Toyota used on 88-91 Cressidas are stamped stainless steel and don't rust. They are pretty easy to adapt. Requires loping off the front end and drilling 2 new holes, and filling the old ones. The first hole is in the right spot.

That's pretty much the worst of it, just the ends, I guess like every other one out there.

That is opposite ends of both sides unless you mean the other ends of those or the back side. But that is the worst of them. you can also left click on the image and then use your computers zoom to get a closer look. But here is the opposite ends.

In the middle they are nice and I kind of cleaned the 10 years of mold off to see if they would clean up at all.
