Question Trim strip filler '75 Overlander bathroom

Hi All
We have been renovating our '75 Overlander and we replaced all the plumbing and put the rear bath back together and now we want to finish it off. My question is this the aluminum extrusions in the bathroom are the same dimensions as the belt lines on the out side but I can't find out what actually snaps in there in any of the online suppliers lists. The original stuff was thin and brittle and just broke up when we tried to save it. Does anyone have a source?
Thanks in advance.

It was a flatish plastic substance similar in color to the rest of the bath plastic ...
Most of it in our 75 Overlander was dry rotted brittle ... the beautification engineer broke most of it out and discarded. I found replacement online, don't remember who, but it's available.

Try C&G Trailer Services in Bellflower, CA. Rod Nd Darlene had a good selection of that trim type a few years ago.

Another easy solution was posted on a thread some time ago, cutting strips to size from a vertical blind vane:
We did something similar in our '72 Overlander. It was a relatively cheap, very easy solution and we had a variety of colors and materials to choose from. We chose a stiff fabric vane rather than vinyl. The strips were easy to cut, popped easily into the metal tracks, looked terrific, and held up well.

Hi All thanks for the help, I found the trim where you all suggested my mistake was in looking for the trim in the same colour as it had weathered to. Thanks again.
