Black vinyl trim

Yeah, that title isn't great, but not sure how to say it better. A guy at the marina who does not use the internet asked me if I would check on this for him. He has a new to him Bene 24, late 80's. It looks pretty good except the black trim that wrapped around between the ports and hatch was all cracked and coming off. He is looking for a source for the shiny black vinyl. There are a few Macgregor boats that have it and it is almost like the black plexi it is so shiny.

Anyone replaced it or know a source? Here is an image of his boat and a Mac for an example.

Re: Black vinyl trim

most any vinyl cutter sign shop would have the material and a computer program to cut it for him. If the weather holds, and with such regular shapes, it may be a DIY job for him.

Best of luck

Re: Black vinyl trim

Thanks kd3pc. I was thinking of sign shops, I mean the letters they cut last forever, so it should work if they have something shiny enough. He wants to DIY for sure. The material on the other boats seems pretty thick though. I'm sure he can shop around the sign places and see if they have something thick enough.

Contact Auto Trim Design, there's very likely one in your area or a comparable auto trim business. They can install the necessary tape quickly and easily at very low cost.

FWIW...
