Doing a full resto on an EATPM and this plastic channel is completely eluding me. Anyone know where I might look, have spent hours looking. It’s the trim molding at the bottom of the back box, and is the channel where the back glass sits in.

I have been looking for that piece for years, finally gave up and found something that works for me!

At the local thrift store I bought a large picture with gold metallic plastic channel framing. It only cost a buck and trimmed the length to fit over the top edge of my hacked up Bally Atlantis factory piece (someone tried to open the backbox without the key by using a screwdriver and gouged the heck out of the top leading edge). I don't know if that's your problem but if so, and it is a little tight fitting, is a good cover up cosmetic fix until a replacement part is found.

[Actually...I think it looks pretty good!]
