I'm not even sure what this stuff is actually called, but I've seen it used on several boats, around cut edges like cabin door openings and consoles. Its like a plastic/rubber C channel type trim similar to what you would find on the edge of your truck door.

Any idea what this stuff is actually called and where I can buy it?

Thanks.

Try looking on TRIMLOK.com. They seem to have any type of edge protector or seal that you may need.

I have used door edge guards from Auto Zone for the same thing. The only draw back might be the length since I think the longest they come is 42".

Most places I found only offered the size I needed in 250ft. rolls. I ended up finding it at McMaster Carr by the foot.

This stuff would work good for about 1/8" to 1/4".

Hate to say it but J.C. Whitney has it in several colors, lengths and shapes.

Contact your local Sherwin-Williams Automotive Paint Store they can get rolls in different lenths and colors (i.e. chrome, Black, etc.)
