Replacing 3 Piece Brass Shower Doors with Nickel?

My coach is ten years old and one of the installations of the period were brass doors and fixtures. I have found brushed nickel for all but the shower doors. I don't want a curtain or fan fold, I want the doors I have (or better) in brushed nickel. Has anyone found replacement doors for this vintage shower?

Your local glass company should be able to take out your current set up and replace it with brushed nickel.

You could also buy the channel and do it yourself.

I had a local glass company install a complete shower enclosure in out coach. Took out the brass stuff and put in the brushed nickel. They came to the coach, measured, the wife picked out the trim she wanted as there are several available and they went away. Came back in a couple of weeks and installed the new stuff. By having a glass place do it, you can make slight changes in the size of the enclosure. For instance, ours is a little higher than came in the coach. You can also specify how many and where the towel bars are placed.

I replaced all the brass fixtures with nickel hardware bought at a plumbing supply house

Thanks for the replies, doesn't appear that anyone found a one for one replacement that could be self installed.

I did the same changeout you are looking to do, but I had it done by a business in Elkhart. I don't know who manufactured the doors.

Have you considered carefully pulling it apart and sending it to a metal plating facility. Then reassembling. If worst comes to worst and it breaks on disassembly get a glass shower guy and have them put a new setup in.

Have you checked the price of plating lately? The EPA rules have driven up the price of plating where it makes it more costly than purchasing new or having it built!

Have you ever disassembled a shower enclosure? There are a bunch of parts that even if you could find a plater, would cost a fortune to do. Much cheaper and faster to have one custom made
