Chrome Bucket seat trim
 
Is there a supplier for the chrome trim pieces on the back of the bucket seats? mine aren't that appealing now, since I plan on refurbishing the interior.Thanks

They are not chrome but aluminium. You can polish the anodizing off and have them re anodized or polish the aluminium or look for a used set at a wrecking yard in good condition. I don't think anyone makes them as repops.

Anodized aluminum can't be sanded/ polished like the stainless trim on the lower part of the console or exterior window trim, so be careful. I've found that a good cleaning with diet Coke and a blue scotch-brite pad, followed by a detergent wash then rinse, makes most of these look a lot brighter.

Re-anodizing is possible but I have no experience with that.

Chrome bucket seat trim
 
I had to strip mine at a stripping company. Cost $60 to strip both seats then I had a local stainless and aluminum polisher polish them up for me. $cost $115 for both. they look brand new. Total cost $175. Worth it if its a restoration.
