You could try a Dodge dealer, visit some junkyards, or hope for the best on ebay. It might be good to post an ad in the classified section of this site, in case somebody has a truck that they are using for parts.

You'll have to get part numbers from the dealer to run down any NOS parts...some may still be available from Dodge...you never know.

Lemme know if you cant find any and I will send you my old one (maroon)...I will send pics if your interested too. Just pay for shipping and its yours! I have a grey one that I got off my friend from his 93, but there is still another small peice missing. Then the one above the rear window is in 3 peices... :(

If these are the long pieces that go across the header than someone on the board just ordered one from Mopar...i believe he also ordered end caps for these too.

The long moulding is
Part# L629EK1 and appears to be subbed to the 90-93 Part# L737JS8 $41.75

The end cap is
Part# L627BW3 and appears to be subbed to the 90-93 Part# L627HW6 $19.50

These are paint as required parts from Mopar. Used from the 80's to 1993.

What color pieces are you looking for? I have an "84 RC parts vehicle which has a light blue interior. Not real sure what kind of shape the trim pieces are in. I could go look, I have the RC out at a friends farm in the country. I am in southern MN.

I recently had my RC's headliner replaced, and the piece above the windshield was cracked, well, the upholsterers broke it taking it off. I called all of the Dodge Dealerships in my area, and they told me "No way". I was able to find one in a RC at a local junkyard. It was starting to crack near the two outboard screwholes, but I JB-Welded those areas, and it worked perfectly. What a lousy, miserable part!!!! Seems like all of these break!

My experiance with some dealers is that they just say no-way because they just don't want to deal with it. I have an 'old time' dealer here, they sometimes get cranky with me when I'm asking for some old part - but it is amazing what they can find - these old rigs used many of the same parts for years, so their still out there - you just have to get a partsman who's willing to look, and a dealer that's 'into' old trucks.
Eastwood company also sells a lot of stuff to repair plastic parts, for resto people. I've not used them yet, but friends tell me they're a good company, they're on the web, but they're hard copy cat. is better.
Also try this guy, let's see if he's for real:

I've got the pieces for above the front windows. Both are slightly cracked in the same place-common problem, but no pieces are missing. A little epoxy for plastic will cure that. If you need or want these just pay the shipping and they are yours.

Like I said in this post. These part numbers were ordered from Dodge just a couple of months ago and their is stock at the NOS dealers. The parts guys are just too GD lazy to look things up if the vehicle is over 1 year old. You want your RC fixed, you have to confront these people. Calling on the phone is totally useless... go to the dealer and throw your gonads up on the counter and demand satisfaction. If they wont look it up and give you the part number than complain in the showroom where all the customers are buying new cars! Doing it loudly, will get you results! :)

Chump, you are one hell of a character ;D I may have to drive up to Colorado one day just to meet you.
As usual, you are absolutely correct. So many of the parts guys just don't care about looking up piddling stuff for older vehicles. You need to go there and get to know the guys. Bring your truck and park where they can see it. Wear a Mopar shirt if you have one. Let them know that you are a Mopar guy and you love old vehicles. Hopefully you will find a parts guy or two who will become a good contact.

Just about all of the headliner trim pieces in my truck were broke when I bought it. Knowing that these parts are hard to find in good shape at the junkyard, two years ago I decided to make a visit to my dealer hoping for the best. The guy at the parts counter was more than willing to help and spent at least a half hour looking up and ordering the parts for me. He was extremely patient. I have made several visits there since and always get the same gentleman. He is always friendly and willing to take the time to help me with what I need. Again, this was about two years ago, but I've been there many times since for other parts. You'd be surprised what they still have available. Unfortunatly this kind of service is the exception rather than the rule. I would agree, forget about calling. Go to the parts counter in person.

I agree, for the most part that is the case. Luckily the dealership I deal wth (Gainesville dodge) has been very helpful. The parts guys have gone as far as giving me a list of part #'s to look for in the JY, when the part is not available or too expensive.
