Default Need some help finding trim for my new bonne

Well I am the proud new owner of a Bonneville SSEI pretty sweet little ride. All options and everything I am really digging the HUD

Anyways I am looking for some chrome fender trim for it any one know where I can find some?

I have a design scheme worked out and the chrome fender trim will play an integral role.

Any help you could offer would be much appreciated. Thank you!

You're going to have a tough time finding anything chrome on an SSE/i as the accent trim is all black. SEs with the SLE package came with a chrome strip above the door mouldings but I haven't seen any wheel well trim (?) on any trim level.

Is it wheel well trim that you are looking for?

Please put "19xx SSEi" in your signature. It makes it easier to answer future posts.

You won't find anything like that custom made for the Bonneville. You'll need to get some 'trim to fit' stuff and do it the hard way.

I was thinking maybe from a Lesabre or Park Ave. I don't even know if those vehicles have the trim or not. It they do... will it fit correctly?

Our cladding panels may be a problem with it. But I don't recall ever seeing another H body with it.

Default Trim

I don't think I would put any chrome trim on a SSEi. If you stand back and look at them the are really sharp without any chrome except the optional chrome wheels.

Yah sorry guys it'* a 1993
Know where I can find the trim to fit stuff? I was thinking that a lesabre or park ave might have a similar wheel well as you guys already mentioned.

And yah it is a sharp car but once it is all dressed up it will look even better

In fact it is going to have lots of chrome on it I think once it comes together it will look really nice.

I am still looking but if you guys know wheer I can buy some trim to do it myself or find some somwhere I would appreciate the help. Thanks to everyone who has already replied.
