Another year's gone by for Woody. Over the length? Make them an inch too long and people could trim them.

If you have the plastic trim that has simply yellowed, there was a post on another site where a guy took acetone on a clean rag, and carefully went down the length of the trim ONE time, in one direction. Says it completely removed the yellow and looked like new again. YMMV.

I ended up removing mine fully and plan to paint them body color. I cut the front edge at an angle to avoid the sharp angle. I think it'll look ok.

I would have liked "new" but can't find them...

I removed the plastic ones (they weren't worth keeping) and kept the stainless corner elbow pieces. I painted the drip rails when I painted the Wag. Doesn't look too bad. But I'm willing to buy some stainless trim pieces if anyone makes or finds them.

I purchased the plastic chrome strip that surrounds the window on the tailgate from BJs. It still looks pretty good after several months. It just slides over the lip and looks like it would fit the drip rails. I’ve seen rolls of it at auto supply stores. Obviously not as nice as the original or stainless. Just an inexpensive possibility. After I get around to putting another coat of primer on the Waggy I might try it out. I’ll post up some pics when I do.

Just throwing my hat in, in case this ever comes to fruition.
