Looks like a filler piece for something. Not much help I know. You are just like me Ed. When I put something together I always have parts left over.

That end cap piece is the thing that holds the whole car together!!!

Please sweep the garage clean, and put all those old parts in a container, and seal it before you start my car. The worse thing that can happen is to have parts left over, and no idea where they belong. Besides, I don't want my Miller Meteor being contaminated by Superior parts.. That is "Superior" as a brand name ..................

Looks like a end trim piece for a M-M Vani-Shade to me.

Paul, if I were you, I wouldn't let Ed work on your car. You don't want that to happen. Then he would have time to work on one of mine!!!

I think that it is a bit late.. He has already torn it down to the bare bones, and the paint has been purchased. Pictures here...
