Bob: these are not Jaguar parts (there was no side molding from the
factory), so the best bet is to find a trim shop that will be able to supply
a substitute.

Bob, is this the type of moulding with a vinyl strip inserted into an
extruded aluminum channel that is riveted to the body? If so, this was a
common type of aftermarket moulding popular in the 70’s-80’s. A bit hard to
find now. Ask around at some body shops and.or car dealerships…most do
business with a mobile “trim guy” who does mouldings, pinstripes, vinyl
repair etc. One of these guy oughta be able to fix you up.

If you like browsing Eaby there’s a guy who sells it fairly frequently…

Good luck,

Bob, this stuff is easy to find, try the auto paint & body SUPPLY
type places, that’s where you’ll get the best price. It comes on
rolls and you buy it by the foot. Here is a couple of tips: don’t
cut the piece to length until you are finished putting it into the
metal holder. Warm the plastic in a pot or coffee can of hot water,
it goes in Much easier. Use a small 'pocket type slot screwdriver
to push in the lso, as you are putting it in DO NOT Streach it,
thinking it will go in easier. While it Will go in easier, it will
then ‘shrink down’ in the hours/days after you have finished the
project. This stuff shrinks on its own over time/exposure to
sun/etc. The less you strech it-the better I seem to remember
you’ll spend maybe $20-30 to do a car (plastic only-no metal) Good

Thanks to all for the info and advice. I am repainting the car and
have decided to remove the trim and fill the rivets holes since it
was not a factory item anyway. I liek the looks of a smooth door
so I will be happy and it will be the way it left the factory.

Thanks again

Bob,
That’s a great idea. Fortunately my Jag never got the
side moulding put on it by the previous owner. I think it
looks better. Of course you have to be careful where you
park. It seems to me though that if I park 50 yards away
from the nearest car and go in a shop for 5 minutes some
ignorant moron has decided to park next to my car. Must be
Jag-envy !

Trust me Jim, the presence of the door moulding doesn’t make you immune
from dings. The great variation in the shapes of doors and vehicle
heights means that chances are pretty good that any car next will be
able to hit you somewhere other than the strip. So I decided long ago
that the strips would go away when I do a repaint.===================================================
