Replacement tank trim (gold, silver or black)

Hi folks,

Wanted to provide you an updated. I'm getting the tank for the 80 1100LG back together (already got the rebuilt front end on and the rear end is going back together as well) and wanted to show you the trim on the real deal. IMHO it looks better than the original which has gotten brittle and darker in 40 years. The equivalent black trim I put on the restored 78 1100E is working perfectly. Good product and doesn't use the fussy clips like the original because the adhesive bead is sitting on the bottom of the "U" extrusion.
