Is the Trim Filler Molding still available from anyone? If not has anyone tried to heat it up and stretch it back to length?

Are you talking about the stuff on the front of the bus? It's about 3/4" wide, there's a few places to buy new and it's inexpensive. It's not rubber, it's kinda plasticy?

Yes, plastic that has shrunk over time. Where would I start to look for it?

My experience is that it shrinks over time, and not that much time. Been years since I did it on my old FC and I don't remember what I got or where I got it. But whatever you get, it will shrink

Nothing like hard facts backed up with useful information to help you decide!

I helped Mr. Finn do his "paint behind the ears" project and it really worked well. No matter how long that thin trim gets cut it will still shrink past the point of no return sad to say. The backup paint really does the trick
