Windscreen trim, lower 'gap's filler?

this plastic does shrink,  but not by 3" when supposedly new

there is always trouble with things stored on a roll it gets stretched as its wound on , vinyl   flooring does the same  

but the supplier should spec a length otherwise you have no idea if its   sufficient 

i would return it as not suitable for purpose ,  too long is far more sensible 

was this a recognised   seller ?????or a market place

I admit I thought there was just a piece missing so checked the stanpart spare parts catalogue and found 611437, cover, joint finisher so ordered it from ANG £2.99. :)

It probably is the part I ordered but not the part I need. Eeeeh well. Must try harder

This lockdown is getting to me :(

you may be right , if so he needs to buy a length of mylar and cut it to suit the gap    

 jeff  that  clip only covers the  abutted ends      its not a gap filler  just a join mask 

so yes the old mylar has shrunk   

probably best to buy a full new length , then you can use your clip 

and you may need the inserting tool to refit the trim strip into the rubber

this might seem daft but there is more than one profile , some sit nice and flush  some remain raised ,   you bound to be donated the wrong match  

i have some to fit the 2000 rear windo , you cant reach it, the rubber is well hard and old i have a new rubber but its been waiting 4 yrs to do this ,if there is any left over youre welcome 

but it may be a looooong   waaaait
