Not realy, probably they break because of age.
I looked for some time for something that would fit, but afterer several things between bumper and chassis still not satisfied.
At the moment I have door edge strip, but not realy a wow feeling.
I think you are on your own in this case.

Make sure you get them very warm, then stretch and try to hold them while they cool. The strip that runs from the screen to the rear of the car ended up 25mm short when I rebuilt my car.

This works OK for the front screen.




It is for mobil homes/caravans and normaly placed in a alu strip.
It is on the car for a few years now.

I was thinking on a similar method yesterday. Today I tried it on the upper trims of the rear side windows by using a hot air gun. I managed to extend them with a little bit more than 1cm. Fortunately they did not crack. Tomorrow I will continue... Smiley

Those trims are the worst whiches were mentioned by you.

Thanks for the tip. I have seen it in another topic before. Someone wrote the name of it, HERZIM 110 if I remember well.

It really looks good. And of course, your cat also likes it so it must be ok. Smiley

Is it self adhesive or a double sided tape have to be used?

No not self adhesive.
I used a acid free silicon kit.
Best is to fill the gap between the window and the chassis.
Make it smooth and let it dry.
It took me 4 hours to get it right.
It is not one of my favorit jobs but once done you know how to do it next time Wink

I have found a strip which is quite close to the original, but unfortunately the manufacturer does not have it in stock. They produce at least 100m, if I need it.

So, I am still searching.

I'm still thinking about closing all the gaps with polyester and make it a smooth car in 1 piece.
Something holds me back from doing that.

If you close the gaps with polyester the slightest nudge on the bumper will crack the filler and paint, better to use a flexible strip of some type.
