Wheel Well Trim
« on: July 25, 2016, 10:14:46 AM »
On my last trip I ran over an alligator (recap portion of semi- tire).  It flipped up and broke one of my wheel well molding trim pieces.  With a 1996 coach, i'm finding out that they no longer exist.  Any ideas for a replacement Item?

When we bought our old 1995 Coachmen, it was missing the left rear wheel opening trim. Since both sides were interchangeable, I used the right one to make a duplicate formed from thin aluminum flashing. When it fit to my satisfaction, I filled the back side with spray foam trimmed flush and painted it to match the other side. The right one had a couple of cracks in it, so I heat welded them closed from the back side, and filled that one with foam too.

Thanks Tom!!  i'll give that a try.

Dutch, If I can't find a used one I will give that a try.  I like the idea of filling with foam.  That should strengthen them up a bit.

I hope you have better luck than I did, Jim. I checked every salvage yard I could find with no luck.
