Seam mouldingss

My Trillium has been sitting for some time and I知 getting ready to restore her. The mouldings that cover up the seams are have shrunk and have become wavy. Are these done and ready for the trash or can they be revived. If I need to buy new can I still get them somewhere?

Mensie, if it is plastic molding, just pull it off and drop it in a pot of close to boiling water for 10 minutes. That will straighten it. Then re-install it.

This problem is also very common with Trillium t molding.

It sounds like some kind of bizarre soup, but John is correct. The T molding in a Trillium is not glued to the shell, there is a socket strip that the piping at the bottom of the T snaps into. It pulls right off and snaps back in.
