    Hi,

    I am after the white rubber moulding that fits in the aluminium extrusions along the roof and around the hatches.

    Does anyone know who stocks it please?

    I've tried the plastic stuff and it does not mould around the corners well.

    Many Thanks.

    Cheers Jim....:thumb:

    I've tried the plastic after submersing in hot water to make it pliable.

    When it cools down it seems to pull out of the aluminium extrusion.:Sad:

    Hi Steve

    I think that happens when it's over heated, the plastic stretches then shrinks when cold.. but you know that already :roflmto:

    Have you tried just gentle warming with a hot air gun .. just enough to get it in the groove..
    I recall having this trouble with an old caravan I was renovating..

    Did it work and stay in place Jim?

    The problem is with the tight corners.

    Yes .. worked fine..

    with a hot air gun you can work a little at a time, the trick is not to stretch the plastic when it's warm.. best done in the summer or in a heated garage.
