J trim

Hello everyone... Has anyone replaced their J trim around the wraparound window in the front..??? We have an Argosy and need some hints for getting it to curve around the rounded corners.. Have cut into the back like it was previously done.. but the j trim is stiff and difficult to bend.. thinking of heating it.. any suggestions would be appreciated...

Hi - I've done this and it works out very easily. With sidecutters nip the long side every inch or so -- a little further apart in areas of lesser curve. Temporarily remove rivets, insert the J trim, drill thru the J trim and re-insert new pop rivets. I used J trim that appeared very OEM -- got it from Tucson's Oasis RV Airstream dealer.
