Default SOOO BIG's lookin' for some "bling"!

I've been slowly adding some additional "bling" to SOOO BIG. So far I've had success finding everything but the chrome belt trim that follows the surround body contour, the center hood chrome strip and a replica Chrysler hood ornament. Are these still available? If so, where can I find 'em? Advise, thanks.

Belt line can be bought in a role. Then you can pick your width. Probably cheaper that way.

This place has the hood center trim and the beltline trim:
Cruiser Motor Sports their prices are a little high.

I've also found both items on Amazon.com for a better price.
I got my beltline trim on Amazon.

Also, as mentioned, you can just buy a roll of the chrome adhesive trim in the width you want and cut it to size.

Crewzin, I checked out the "Goddess emblem and trim" The price is prohibitive at $155 even though it included the chrome center hood trim. The deciding factor for not doing it though, is that in order to mount the "Goddess emblem"(and I don't mean in the biblical sense) I'd have to drill mount holes in the hood. SOOO BIG objected to that!
rckstein, the other center hood trim that you suggested has a nice enough look but I'm trying more for the split hood look that I had on my 40 Plymouth Coupe. I may me able to replicate that sense with two narrow strip of the 1/4" belt trim tape running through the center of the hood from the back to the existing PT Chrysler hood emblem.
BustedPT, your suggestion to check the chrome trim available locally. Discount Auto sells a 20' X 1/4" roll for $14.99. With over 31' needed to do it I'll buy two rolls which still prices well under the lowest cost on the internet. It also leave a bit extra for the hood. Bling on!!!
Wadaya think? Too tacky or on the mark?
Thanks. Happy PTin', ptprice
