Does anyone know what the deal is with the long corner trims, whichI've only seen on buses in promotional type images?

At first I wondered if they were only fitted to buses made before the start of deluxe production, as I've never seen them fitted to a deluxe.

But then I realised there were some later barndoors (non piano hinge) with them on:

And even some rear bumper buses with them on:

I'm wondering if the images were modified to add them, did the trims exist in real life? It's hard to tell if they're real in the images, I'm not 100% convinced they're real.

Has anyone ever seen any of these trims in the flesh? Do they appear in any parts books?

Now I´m curious to see rear view images too. Appears to be installed above the normal position.

Hi Ben
Looking at that picture it looks like it had the trim on the long panel aswell maybe the way there is rust is quite high up?

The trim in that rear view looks to be about the right height, regular corner trims sit a bit lower than that. Shame that petrol pump is in the way

So the long trims have been fitted to really early buses, right through to rear bumper buses

I've not seen them fitted to a deluxe. I thought I found a picture, but it looks to be a modified kombi or standard

Looking at Ben's pictures you can see there is a rubber 'gasket' between the trim and the bodywork. I've never seen that on a deluxe with corner trim, maybe they're not factory fitted?

What is the length?

I think those might be front bumper trims.

The rear corner trims would have to travel around a 90-degree angle to match the rear corner metal

Either way, some NOS trims are a great find!

they are about 85 cm. long ( ca. 34 inch.) I think thats to long for a bumper trim.

It is longer.

The front bumper trim on my Barndoor Deluxe bumper is 33".

I didn't measure along the rubber edge so that might be a 34" measurement if you include the rubber?

This is just one of the coach built threads from austrobus. Lots of different types of trim. (no pun intended)
