In another thread ... I posted a pic of the arch I created as a replacement for the retaining wall in my '47 Caddy Ambulance. I have pondered for quite some time as to how to dress the finished edges of the arch. The simplest idea was to run a router around the edges to give them a finished look. This would allow me to put just about any shape on the edges. Well I was going to do just that until I ran into a site on the net. The web address is WWW.FLEXIBLEMOULDING.COM
That's right ... flexible moulding. Personally I never heard of the stuff. But apparently, there are several companies making all kinds of shapes and sizes. This company must have at least a thousand shapes. I am told, by the companies general manager, that the flexible moulding can be sawed, sanded, nailed, screwed, painted and or stained depending on the application. It sounded pretty interesting. So I got them to send me a free catalog and price list. This flexible moulding can be kind of expensive. The range runs from $4 to $20 a foot. However, in an automotive application, that price range probably isn't too bad as there wouldn't be a lot of pieces needed.
Anyway, it is just a thought. Maybe some of you guys might want to check it out. As for me... I am now thinking about putting in a curved beam headliner in the Caddy. Or did I swallow a bunch of stupid pills again?
