replacing baseboard heat run in bathroom

Strange question guys. I've gutted and remodeled our bathroom. In the process I removed the beat up old baseboard heater cover thinking I'd slap on a new blank that I bought from HD.

Well, the blank seems to be made to fit 2" fins and the system in our house has fins closer to 3". The existing piping/fins are in good shape so I'd rather not call in a plumber and swap them out. Is there something I'm missing on the fit? If not can you recommend somewhere to buy the larger blank?

Hope this makes sense. Thanks in advance...

You could have one made at a sheetmetal shop. Then you paint it. Take with you another one of the right width in your house for a pattern.
