    accessory / aftermarket interior trim on rocker panel


    who has/had the aluminum interior trim on the rocker panel? I guess its an aftermarket part....

    I have it ... and I have seen it on many other SWB cars... whats the story behind (brand/year)? Does anybody know something about it?
    My car is an US-car from 1968. It had these trims as well as an amco shift knob (like the other examples attached)

    Best regards

    I was always of the belief that the Ali Rocker covers were a US Dealer installed option but I may be off the mark on this.

    This is engine turned metal made by Ernie Haneline in the 50's through the 70's. It was not a factory Porsche part.

    Some very interesting 356's and 911's still wear this period after market trim...

    The ex-Otis Chandler / Bata Mataja beautiful silver '73 911S had the full complement.....

    Thank you for this information! ... and the company still exists! So it's an authentic part of hot rod history!

    kick/scuff protectors

    I have a set of these "kick/scuff protectors" somewhere and I believe they are "engine turned Stainless Steel"...not a very high grade of Stainless...probably 304 or similar..."Aluminium" would probably be scuffed-up in a minnitt!...
