I have a cap on the back of my truck and, like many such, it has a number of metal (extruded aluminum) strips with a flexible plastic (vinyl?) strip covering the screw heads in that extruded strip. Those plastic strips are starting to age and crack and I want to replace them.
I went to a local shop that installs those caps for the first one that cracked and they charged me almost $50 to replace just that one. That is just too much for a five minute job and 8 or 10 feet of the plastic strip. Their prices on the caps are out of sight too. So I hate to go back there.
Yesterday I stopped at a bunch of local auto and hardware stores and could not find any of this material. This morning I searched on the web, also with little luck. But that is probably a matter of terminology.
Does anybody know where I can find some of this flexible plastic strip material? Or at least what to search for? The proper search words? I need a material that is about 7/8" wide and about 1/32" thick. I am willing to buy a full roll as the remainder of the strips will probably go bad over the next year or two.
