Please keep Taylor Restorations in mind for your restored Cougar aluminum trim needs as I have a good quantity of restored trim in stock and ready to ship. Prices listed below are with exchange of good core trim pieces. I do have a few extra cores, so if you are missing something, just ask - a small core change will apply. This trim is fully restored, straightened and polished but not anodized. Simply use a light wax on it and it will stay shiny for years.
Hood Molding - $100 pair
Trunk Molding - $100 each
Fender Molding - $35 each
Quarter Extension Molding - $35 each
Nose Molding - $35 each
Set of 9 moldings (hood, fender, nose, trunk and quarter extensions) - $350
If you need front or rear window trim, I can get that done very reasonably also, and have that in stock from time to time.
Thanks!

Polished aluminum looks great, until it doesn't. It really needs to be anodized. Good deal for the price though!

I don't want to hijack Scott's thread, but West Coast Classic Cougar has a trim restoration service that does include anodizing for aluminum pieces.

To Scott's credit, though, his prices are almost half of what WCCC charges, so this would be great for the budget-minded. Plus, initially, it has a more mirror-like shine - anodizing takes a little of that away, kinda like a clear coat. I just wanted to point out that polished aluminum, without any coating, will have to be continually kept up with metal polish to keep it looking good. It turns milky / dull over time if not maintained. Anodized aluminum stays shiny without the upkeep, which is why the factory pieces were done that way. Just something to keep in mind.
