    Default Chrome trims for 240k coupe

    Hi all,
    I am after a bit of chrome trim for my 240k, having a bit of trouble sourcing any, wondering if anyone knows of, or has stuff they are willing to sell?

    I am short

    1. external sill trims
    2. eyebrow trims for both front guards eg. the chrome that skirts round the outside of the headlights
    3. Both eyebrow trims that skirt the rear lights eg. at the end of the rear quarter panels.

    hope this isn't too confusing,

    cheers,

    Dan

    If yours are only dented a bit then you can actually get them restraightened. Finding a good stainless steel workshop is not easy, but a lot easier than finding the trim pieces!!!

    Trust me on that

    well, the bits that I listed I am actually missing unfortunately. I have a bit of a stockpile of other chrome bits (winscreen surrounds etc) but when I bought this k it was missing all those bits I listed. But I guess 4 door stuff will be mostly the same?

    I actually managed to order some of these piece's through the local nissan dealer. They still had some smaller trim in stock back in the warehouse in Japan. from memory the front eyebrow's were NZ$90 each

    All the front stainless steel trim around the grille is the same.

    There are no parts left in Australia, the only parts were 2x gear stick boots and I bought one last month so that leaves about 1 240K part left in Aus according to FTG Nissan....

    But... I know a guy wrecking a 2 door who can help you out I'll PM you his info!

    cheers adz,
    Alfa - I thought that some of the trim was the same... The sill moulds that run along under the doors... I thought they were the same, but maybe different lengths?

    Anyway gotta be persistant, and keep looking, even though it's quite depressing
