Question 1968 Malibu Sport Sedan Lower side moldings

Hello, the body work is getting finished up and its just about time for paint. I am researching buying the lower trim on my sports sedan and the lower side molding kit for standard malibus because I have seen that they can be shorter and leave gaps? the sport sedan is longer then the 2 doors by a few inches overall.

Does anyone have a source or experience with this issue? My lower trim is almost all dinged up and am doing replacements on just about everything from te dash to windows and fresh paint.

I debating just eliminating the lower trim but I think thats what will be a killer touch to fresh paint, fresh lower trim. TIA

You may have to take them somewhere and have them re-done.

Are you talking about the trim on the lower doors or the rocker panel?

The lower doors. 68 has that trim strip that travels all the way from the bumper down the lower side of the entire car. They eliminated that trim on the 69 so I want to make sure I keep it so those that know the difference can tell =)

They are in bad shape but if I have to have them reworked it is what it is. I've been quoted ridiculous numbers from the 2 shops Ive taken them to locally. Would be cheaper to buy them new..
