FWIW, I met up with Randy by the Dishtronix/Ten-Tec/Alpha booth on Saturday,
and he had those sets of trim pieces with him.
Since I currently need one for my Omni VI+ -- and it's my own fault for not
packing it better when shipping it out for repairs recently -- I was eager
to see these. They look to be an almost exact match for the trim pieces on
my Omni VI+, my Corsair II, and a friend's O6+ I'm looking at.
Why do I say "almost"? The color is a very deep black, and it not QUITE the
same shade of black on the rigs. Which could be due to the age of the
plastic on the rigs... And once in place, I strongly doubt anyone but a
purist would notice the difference.
I know when I left Randy was waiting to talk to Mike about these, so I hope
he was able to catch up with him.
More on Hamvention itself later... Just wanted to give Randy a shout-out

Do you have a Ten Tec Rig, Amp, or PS that has a broken or missing side trim
piece? Spent hours on a 3d printer, and fine tuning the density of the PLA,
and fit. The end result is a STRONGER & BETTER than original end piece. It
has been tried on a Centurion (old and new models), as well as the Model 261
matching speaker and power supply. fits great. The "screw grabber" part has
been thickened to not break off as easy as the old one did.
What a K9--- had to say -"I installed the beefed up set of trim pieces on
my Hercules II and the other set of trim pieces on my Omni 6+. Both sets
fit perfectly and both of my Ten Tec rigs now have matching trim. The
slight color difference from the original is insignificant. In fact I think
the black looks better. It matches the black face of the panel. If I ever
need another set of trims, I would go with the beefed up ones. "
$25 set plus $2.65 for mailling....I may bring some to Dayton..Randy
