I will be putting back side roof molding soon and I would like to ask about foam that goes between the molding and the roof. It is about 1 inch wide and goes all length long on both sides. What is this called and where I can buy it?

Thank you,

Paul

Paul, you described it well and pictures of course confirm the foam strip. I do not think it is sold, have not searched for it though, but with my experience with house project would look to the weatherstripping section in your local home improvement stores. I see all sorts of foam and rubber seals for doors, windows, HVAC, etc. and would think if you cannot find it specifically for the car, you would be able to find something in one of these stores. It is very think so do not want to get something too thick and may have to cut to width but am pretty sure I have seen insulating sealing strips sold in rolls that would work.

Hey Paul, is it this section that you are referring to?

Hi Shane,

no -it is between molding attached to the roof above side door windows.
