Hi all just wondering if there is any interest in having new wooden door trim caps made , I am in the process in to having cutters made to match old door caps and is it worth it before I go to far cheers Pete

As the original door caps can be restored I'm not sure how many people would opt for new replacements, although the original finish is difficult to remove it can be done, I stripped my own many years ago and re-finished in polyurethane varnish, not the original spec but I was and still am happy with it. Perhaps it is different if they are missing from a car or maybe someone would like a different veneer then possibly there is a need for them. Only my opinion in any case.
Mike.
