    Mazza-Nitti restored 1955 Aztec Chevy

    The trim is all hand made and is not 1/2 round, thats sticks up 1/2 inch. Its called 1/4 oval bar. ...more

    No longer made and it was really hard to find it as all the Aztec trim was missing execpt for on on the small little spears at the end of the trim.
    I searched for quite some time for it , finding it in a steel reclaim yard in a remote area of Pennsy. I found over 100 feet which I bought.
    I had to figure a way to bend the trim, I tried heating but, it kinked some, cold bending worked best. I then welded studs on the back , first drilling holes to sink the studs in for better stregth. I wanted to add that as a last resort if all my searching failed I had a friend in New Jersey who used to do all my special machine work. We would have used 1 inch round rod and run it through his computor Bridgeport milling machine. This would have been costly but, what other choice would I have had.
    The trim inside the chrome was fluted aluminum, another item from the 50's used in dinner car counters fronts and in the south they made storm shutters out it. I had one little peice of it to go by, once again a long long search . We found one 4 by 8 foot sheet in a dinner car company in Brooklyn, lucky to have found it and of course only enought to do it right the first time. I had it sheared in a metal shop then cut it to fit inside the trim using a cardboard pattern. Quite a job.

    Restored by Bary Mazza and Bob Nitti.
