    I've got a 1997 SunRidge, where I have to rebuild the cargo lid surround / aka Trunk Cap. About 70% of the PVC plastic wear plate at the front is missing ...

    It's shaped like an "L", 3/4" x 1 1/2" and is attached on top of the top cargo box surround / cover. The rubber strip attached to the bed covers the trim. Strangely, I have what appears to be an aluminum plate in the rear...

    Anyone know where to get the plastic trim piece or can one replace it with a flat aluminum plate?

    thx

    I think an aluminum replacement piece is a good solution. I bet if you walked up and down the aisles of your local home improvement store you'll find something that'll work well.

    I'm in Canada... selection here is, well, close to that in Russia... ;)

    Anyone know what the aluminum ones from Coleman/Fleetwood looked like in later years? Size, if known?

    its basically a drip cap. Local hardware store has aluminum flashing2-3 in. If you happen to know anyone who installs siding and has a " break" they could bend it for you more than likely for free. or just clamp a couple of boards together and bend it over. Just a few ideas from me. Best of luck
