Need a quick answer

Burbs painted! Doing headliner before finishing floor board install.

Have my frp panels cutout and the first one in place. Thought the lip on the original bow would hold it into place but I guess I need the edge lock (whatever it's called). Anywhere I can buy this in a pinch? What's the technical term for it?

Thanks

There is a chrome trim strip that snaps into the metal bows. To the best of my knowledge it is not available. Most of the originals are very brittle and break when trying to re-install them. Some guys are using a aluminum strip to replace the plastic.

Here is a thread that might help..... Uses Dodge van trim strips.
