1976 F-32 - Teak Cockpit Deck Hatch Trim Needed

Post by BradZ » Fri Dec 07, 2018 9:58 am

I'm in the process of re framing the cockpit deck on my 1976 F-32 Sedan. I want to make the cockpit deck hatch large enough to be able to remove the gas tanks if I have issues in the future. My thought is to extend the original hatch towards the sliding doors enough to allow the tanks to be serviced or removed in the future. I would like to use the aluminum trim like on the original hatch but I cant seem to find it for purchase. Does anyone know where I can get this?

I did find this tear drop t mold. As long as you support the hatch another way this will make for a nice finish trim. Just thought I would share what I found sine there wasn't any answers on here from anyone...
