[E-Type] Chrome trim under doors

I am starting the unnerving process of poking at the so
called metal that makes up the lower third of my FHC and
finding more rust and filler than anything solid. Upon
poking at the sill area I broke away some bondo and found
what looked to be a chrome trim piece that ran along the
bottom of the door. I have searched to see if cars ever
had this but not easy to see in pics

My car is a bit of a Frankenstein as is has a nasty scar
across its mid section and what I believe is a nice
derrier of a 1964 mated to a beat and battered front half
of a 1963. What is what and who put what part where is my
puzzle.

Thanks.–

Hi Joe,
I don�t know if it�ll be much help to you, but I did a
website and a blog when I was restoring my 64 E-Type. The
website covers my disassembly and the blog picks up when I
get the car back from the paint shop.
the website is: www.my64etype.com
and the blog begins at:

Keep poking ,Joe. You’ll most likely find a stainless steel piece
of metal that someone has riveted in and covered with bondo. There
is no chrome strip under the paint in that area.–

Joe,
Is the chrome strip on the bottom of the door itself OR is
the strip under the door on the door sill?–

Thanks for the feedback guys

This was a thin trim piece that was about as wide as the
rail gutter strip above the door. It was only on the
passenger side. It was attached to the sill under the door
then a boat load of filler that was shaped to look like an
outer sill. Fugly at best. I will force myself to use the
phone post process soon.–
