Hey I found a source for the Westfalia cabinet plastic trim. $10/20 ft. not bad, I just ordered a roll.

Did you also get some of that fabulous orange "t-moulding"?
It would be smashing with your orange air cleaner . . .

Oh I thought about it......but didn't want to get TARRED N FEATHERED. Plus I do like the stock look, it's classic.

Got it today, great quality but guess what too gray. I have emailed them to see about returns, there is no customer service dept.
This looks closer, putty gray:

Was the trim white 45 years ago? Maybe I'm trying to match old faded stuff...but I seem to recall it was cream colored.

Putty grey looks more hopeful, but some of this depends on computer monitor settings, photograph settings, print quality, etc.

Hmm, my 77 is black so it was so easy to match and replace all the broken or missing T molding with black 3/4".
