Chopped windscreen...where can I find trim?

Where can I find rubber trimming to go around a windscreen? I tried the big stores: Lowes, Home Depot, Ace, Auto Zone...none of them have anything close.

Try an auto detailing outlet. You should be able to get some fine car door edge trim.

I found it at Wal-mart in about 2 minutes once I knew what to look for. It came out better than I expected. One strip was the exact right length.

It's still on the madstad bracket and wind hits me on my upper chest and neck. I could direct it down a little more. It's more noise and less protection, so I might take it off. The screen was scratched beyond reason, so it's no big loss chopping it down.

Yeah, that's how I felt about cutting mine, no great loss.
