    Plastic body moulding insert?

    Does anyone know where I can buy the "V" section plastic infill strip for the alloy channel on my Eriba camper, it is a fairly common sort of moulding that expands and grips in the channel where the screw heads are. Mine over the years has become brittle and shrunk pulling out at the curved corners and looking unsightly so I need to replace about 4 Mtrs of this stuff.

    When I was in the motor trade, where we met non standard vehicle conversions by unknown makers, we used to source the trim sections and channel required from specialist coach/body builders.
    If they had not got it they could usually source it. Generally though, special orders meant buying a lot more than required.
    Check your Yellow Pages or the 'net for Coach & body builders and try them.

      You could try www.sealsdirect.co.uk jajjay found them very helpful a few years ago and on her recommendation we also used them to source a trim to cover rivet heads around our old Motorhome door.

        I was just going to suggest the same people. I got trim for around my caravan front window from them. They are good.

            Hi paul, ive just discarded a bin liner full,Pants i no you could have had it free!! I owned my eriba car and rebuilt it almost over 4 years, the trim in question tho is easy enough to source,Try Magnum mobiles, Grimsby,Ask to speke to kenny carter, tho there are loads of different profiles, he will have one thats fits, i put maroon back in mine there were miles of it, i put mine in a bucket of hot soapy water as it needs to be a good tight fit, and then slipped it in
            Rob,:thumbsup:

              Wow, just clicked the link.
              Best source of seals etc. I have ever seen. I have completed lots of "projects" in the past and wasted much time locating seals and trims to complete the Job.
              The link is now saved in "Favorites" (windows spelling not mine), just in case.
              Jim.
              Just a tip from experience: Always use the maximum length of filler or seal you can squeeze in. It will ALWAYS shrink over time and try to leave a gap somewhere.
