I am not sure if these are the same as the T strips on our Trillium but mine were all wrinkled and shrunk so I boiled them for about 30 seconds and they were like new.

Hinges for 1976 Trillium 1300

Hey, I need to get a set of door hinges for our 76 1300. I think they are Kason 139 hinges with 3/8" offset. Can anyone confirm?
And are there any Canadian distributors? Best place to buy?
Thanks!

ZEP after 6 coats

I decided to go for it and rubbed the entire trailer down with Bar Keepers Friend, then applied 6 coats of ZEP floor finish. Amazing, and very easy. Took 39 years off of our 40 year old trillium. :-)
