1956 Capri Windshield

I am part way through a restoration on a 1956 19' Capri. I was fitting the windshield and realized that I am missing the top chrome trim on both sides. This runs from the center support across the curved plexiglas to the corner fitting. Each piece would be about 38" long. Can anyone help me out?

It's possible that Al at California Classic Boats can make it for you. He has made the whole windshield in the past. He turned 97 a couple weeks ago and goes to work everyday. Pretty awesome.

I spoke with Al yesterday and he is going to make the parts for me. Not cheap but he does great work. And he is actually only 94 years young!!
