stretched rear wheel well trim

Can anyone tell me where I can get rear wheel wheel molding for my 5" streached wheel wells?

Is there any other beaded trim that may work?

I have seen it on cars but dont know where to get it thanks

Re: streached rear wheel wheel trim

I believe they take 2 trim pieces to make one. It will have to be welded together and then smoothed and polished.

Since I can't weld I had a custom shop attempt to weld/braze 2 moldings into a stretched configuration.......we gave up after 2 attempts( 4 mouldings) and we eventually "reformed" the moldings to the wheel opening by hand by using the center of the opening and reforming the front and rear ends of the molding. The moldings end about an inch before the end of the wheel opening on each end.
