Hey, I'm not out here to shatter your dreams, but it would have been a big (bad) surprise if you got this delivered.... Grin

That link I put up may be promising. There are some minimums in ordering but if you could get the right stuff in 5/8" (which I think Zacc panel thickness is about) I am positive that there will be more Zacc owners willing to join in....

Hey, no worries. This is the last thing I'm getting so it's ages away yet. I found my spare tape measure and the t-mold is 3/4 inch so at least it's a standard size to get hold of. I may contact some cabinet makers or carpenters locally too, you never know....they may have rolls of it stashed away. But yeah, good idea to look at a bulk buy on here  Cheesy

This was the t-molding that I was looking at. I haven't got too in depth as I've still got a mountain of work to do on the cab. It will be the last thing I get once it's all shiny and finished. There is quite a few places that do an aluminium or brushed chrome style that looks like the original one. Whether they're good enough for the real fussy t-mold snobs is another story though. It's my first cab and I'd rather go for something like this than have no t-mold. The original stuff on my cab had rotted away.

Rory.

The link points to a solid alu t shape.... You cannot bend that the way you need. You are right that a t molding is beter then none. If not found I would go for simply black. Just remenber t molding is an apply ones product.... If you change molding to often the slot will wear out...... That you don't want.

Enjoy your resto and keep those pics coming.

Yeah I think this seriously may be an option. They do custom runs too but minimum lengths are pretty high, but if there would be a group buy maybe it would be possible.

Sadly the website is old-school and the pictures not very clear.
I'd like to ask for some samples (my interest is 15mm/ 5/8" Flat green of course Wink) but I think one of the Zaccers should pick up the ball on "their" stuff.....so far I didn't even read what width the Zacc side panels are.........

It's definitely a good idea, failing that I may have to reside with the ghetto style chrome. I guess I can force it to grow on me once the rest of the cab has been painted and looks new again. If the old t-mold hadn't have rotted away in parts, I would have kept it.

Yeah...bad t-molding ruins a cab IMHO. It's so "in the face". I can live with many imperfections but not half-broken off T-molding etc.

Please use black tmolding not the ghetto stuf.  Cool
