Rocker panel moldings

Does ANYONE make/sell decent rocker moldings? The repos I have are thin gauge (aluminum?) easily dented and don't lock onto the clips properly.

No! That is why NOS ones bring up to $800. There are some restored ones and a NOS one on concoursmustang.com classified last week.
If you do not care about authenticity Burton Antique Auto has some that are made of Stainless steel that looked pretty good a while back.

Thanks Marty.
The Burton moldings (stainless) are listed at $580+/- and 1 month lead time.
The Concourse Mustang moldings are original, re-plated for $180 + shipping.
I'll PM the seller and buy them.

I have heard some bad things about the replating. It takes a really good original that has no deep pits or scratches as they must be polished out. That some times leaves the metal very thin. The bad part is you pay weather it turns out good or not.
