Look what I found. New old stock. Molding that is at the floor height of my Regency. It is also halfway between the roof and the floor. May be on other Barth Coaches also. If you need some contact me. The molding only comes in 12 foot long pieces. Cost is $1.00 per foot plus packaging shipping costs. It only comes in BLACK The manufacturer has one box left. They no longer make it at this manufacturer.
NOTICE: THE TRIM IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE FROM THIS SOURCE
The molding is exactly at the floor level. It is snapped into the extruded aluminum rail that is about right here.
The extruded aluminum rail is painted grey-silver now and so is the plastic molding. When I change the molding to all black, I will post the new material.
Picture of original molding for comparison. New molding fits perfectly. The original molding has little fins on the outside top.
Old meets new molding. I am replacing all of my molding, even the molding that was painted silver.
Here is where I replaced the silver painted stuff with the new black.
It makes a nice color break with the black molding in the silver strip.
Kevin ,The new molding looks VERY nice.
Model:: Barth Regal
Length:: 25 ft
Engine:: New Chevy 454 HO
Data Tag Number:: 8606 3339 25FP2
Looks really nice. Our molding is black so we will just be replacing missing pieces and a couple of broken areas. Looks sharp.
Oops, I forgot to mention how wide the molding actually is. It is sold as 33/64 or 1/64 over a half an inch. Thanks to the members questions in private, I have noted it here for the membership to see. The size is also now on the top of the posting.
I had Kevin send me 4 12' strips for my 28' Regal.
After kvetching to him that the strips wouldn't unwind to be completely straight (doesn't matter), then figuring out that I wasn't expected to slide the whole thing in from one end, both sides are almost done!! Of course I came up about 1.5" short. It was actually more than that because I bunged one end up trying to slide it in from the end of the track.
I'll get me one more 12' length. This will allow me to finish the side and also replace the rear strip, which I noticed too late, is also broken.
I did leave the molding out in the sun for a few days, then in the garage for a few days, then in the Barth for a few days. Hopefully it has done all its shrinking.
Here are some before and after shots. Looks great, you can almost ignore the terrible paint condition now. And yes, my Barth is dirty.

Interestingly, the rivets under the strip were placed in every other hole. I thought about water entry and put a smidge of polyurethane in each empty hole, at the same time wondering if someone here is going to say that they are left open intentionally as drains or vents:
And what are the chances that the door catch screw would skewer a rivet?

Rear is done!

I k now this is an old post but...
Would this fit the 1990 22ft Regal? Some of my molding is past its best...
