Default Rubber for top edge of rub rails

Hi,
Does anybody know where I can get the small V shaped rubber on the upper edge of the rub rails.
Mine has shrunk so much that you can see all the way down to the ground.

Bob, Are you speaking of the aluminum trim on both sides?

No Ed,
Talking about the V shaped rubber that is on the top and bottom of the trim.

Bob, my 83 had the same problem. After much searching I found a rubber trim that would work. I could only find it in grey rubber and was from a company that made rubber trim to protect the glass in aluminum storm windows. I bought a 1000 ft but only used about 450 ft. I gave the rest to Ed Wimberly. You may get him to send you a foot to insure that it is something you would like to use. The black rubber that covers the screws also had shrunk badly. I found an ideal replacement form an internet auto supplier that does not shrink and is very easy to install. Google Terrys auto supplies or Terry's. Net. Look under wheel well trim , need the 3/8 in. And they have a few colors including the black.This has a peel off tape and adheres well. Make sure your trim is clean.
The hardest part was removing the trim screws. Slotting the screws. That did not come out easily with a die grinder worked well. Fastnall has the stainless replacement screws. Applying a little anti seize to the new screws would help in any future removal.

And it works well and fits as it should. No modifications required at all. Another fine product made by WOG Members for us.

Hi Ed,
Where did you get the trim from?
