Looking for one or a pair if necessary, of a Chromed TOP CAPPING STRIP for the door panel of an Elan S1 or S2.

Thanks

There’s a chap on ebay selling various S 1/2 door bits. They seem pretty good but will need chroming

I see he has very little on his site at present. It may be worth contacting him as he makes them.
I was on the Kelvedon waiting list for sometime . I'm not sure if they are now in stock or not but I am very happy with the Horsham guy's product from ebay

He appears to only have the lock plates on ebay at present but has done much more.

Now for a sacreligious idea for Gino (read no further if you have a heart condition)...if it is really tricky to find these parts, it may be an option to drop into your local "tuning" specialist and ask whether they could spare some silver chrome wrap.

I have not used this but it has crossed my mind that this is the perfect way to add lightness and retain the shiny chrome look.
