The interior door stainless steel trim is dented like some ham handed klutz tried to hammer it into place.  All 4 corners are affected.  I have looked to buy new but none exists.  I need to find someone or some way to fix the dents.  I am uploading pictures but they look worse in real world than in the photos.http://forums.y-blocksforever.com/uploads/images/91e04223-73b8-459e-a7cf-5edb.jpghttp://forums.y-blocksforever.com/uploads/images/06498a83-7412-40d4-a01d-977a.jpg

There are people around that can make that trim look new again. Check with local restoration shops and/or check the adds on Hemmings. If you have patience and a good eye you could possibly do it yourself. There are documents on line that express the process. Lots of finish sanding but I've found that a small sander, like "The Mouse" works pretty well and you can find finer grits for them.

Y's guys rule!
Looking for McCullouch VS57 brackets and parts. Also looking for 28 Chrysler series 72 parts. And early Hemi parts.

If you can find some thin metal pieces that fit inside the trim pieces you can get most of the dents out by using a hammer and going slowly.  It may seem tedious, but can be done if you go slow and checking progress after each hit.

Make sure the metal pieces are rounded  to prevent any creases

The trim you show is really tough to get the defects out,the reason is the cat claw brackets on the backside run the length of the trim so you cant get to the back side to work it and just about impossible to remove the brackets from them.Best  is just to find better ones to replace the old ones   Carl

So, fill and contour with "all Metal" bondo and paint with that real looking chrome paint.
