Help! Need recommendations for flexible molding

Does anyone have any suggestions on what to use for finish molding in the bath where the bathtub siding meets the floor? Floor is vinyl, siding is yet to be determined. We're still working on what to use to cover over that since we took out the carpet that went up the sides. Any suggestions would be appreciated. We have a '72 Sovereign and the bathtub has a curve at the end where it meets the bath wall divider. So it needs to be something flexible or that can be rounded without creasing it. Kind of a round "L" shape. I posted this under flooring too, hopefully I'll get some ideas.

Many thanks,

Just wanted to post an update. I found a product called Flextrim that makes a variety of trim types. It is advertised to have properties just like wood, it can be painted or stained, screwed, nailed, cut cleanly, etc.
The website is: Flexible Trim by Flex Trim

There are several online vendors which carry it.

Or you can search for a nearby dealer at:

It came up with several in my area. Just enter your zip, search radius(miles), and # of returns to display.

This sounds just what I need for the bathtub molding, for where the floor meets the vertical panel. As my tub has a rounded end to deal with. I would imagine it would be great for any application in the AS, because of it's ability to flex/bend to contour any angle.

In my opinion this is a priceless find, as the AS have many obscure angles/bends to navigate while restoring/remodeling. I hope others find this helpful.

Happy trailering!

Looks promising... If you decide to use it, please let us know how it works. In the future, I'll be looking for something for similar use!
