Plastic inserts for bathroom trim

I have a 78 Excella that I am working on.
I need to replace the trim inserts in the trim around the tub and along the front of the counter top.
The insert snaps into the metal trim that covers the joint lines of the plastic tub, counter etc in the rear bath model.
Does anyone know where the plastic insert material can be found?

hi

When you replace the tub with counter top it gives a new look to your bathroom. There are many supplier available in the market for plastic material with good quality which can give great look to bathroom.

The insert must be trimmed so that it can slide in the molding.

Airstream enlarged it many years ago, for a different molding.

We have ours down, before it is ever shipped.

Trim

If yours is like mine; the strip is 1 1/16" wide. Most of what you will find is only an inch wide. After searching the web, I decided to try to make my own. I cut strips from the same vinyl (sheet) flooring. The vinyl is easily cut with a pair of scissors. I've attached a pic.

I replaced my insert nosing with vertical blind material, comes in 16 ft stips for about $3 a strip, cut it into 1" wide strips and slipped it into the aluminum channel. It comes in about a hundred colors. I did the whole trailer for less than $10.

ID:	281117. Washi Tape. Less than $30 and we can switch the colors up anytime we want! Certainly not for everyone.
