Default Looking for car door style trim for fiberglass edges

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.)
