Hi Peter, its a while since I had my Rienza (nostalgia)  and cant visualize the part, but have you googled Snap Caps or Screw caps....... plenty on the likes of Screwfix, Toolstation etc.     Sorry if its not what your looking for.     Like Paul, I cannot bring up your picture.

regards   Bob

Thank you for your quick replies - its a PVC trim that slides into a channel and will need circa 10 meters to cover the door and locker. Sorry about the image missing - I will try again here.

Just a quick update - emailed the contact 3 times and no response of any kind. Sourced another supplier on Ebay and product received and all fitted for under £10.00.

Thank you to those tried to help.

Hi Peter, I mentioned earlier that I was looking for what I called beading to cover the screws around the outside of the habitation door. Is this the same trim you ordered ? . If so were did you order from and what size please. 
I missed you’re post when I asked. The sorting of the wiring has been a bit of a distraction.

Hi Dave - after a bit of research I ordered from eBay on the following link:-

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I ordered white 12mm wide (after measuring a piece of the old trim and allowed for shrinkage) which seems to be a common size - eBay item ref number 274310054076 - other colours available. Delivery was Royal Mail 7-10 days


Suggest look up a guide on how to install the trim by watching a YouTube video which helped me and fitted the trim last weekend to the habitation and gas bottle locker - nice finish and looks great.


Hope this all helps - good luck  allthumbz

Thanks Peter that’s a great help. I will look on You Tube this morning.
When we fitted glass to the buses you had to fit an insert into the rubber surround to hold the glass in. There was a special tool for that. We sprayed the surround with soapy water as you fitted the insert. It was messy being a rubber surround you ended up with mucky soapy water up you’re sleeves. 
I have ordered enough to do the door it should be here Thursday. I will check the other surrounds when I move the Rienza off the hedge.

No problem Dave - at best all you will need is strong fingers and maybe a flat blade screw driver (used with care) and maybe a bucket with hot water to make the PVC supple depending on the temperature. The finish is worth the effort.

Hi Peter, I have received the infill strip as ordered. The surround for my door must be different to yours or I have the wrong infill. The new infill is a different profile to the old one. It doesn’t clip in as per the original. It fits in the channel hiding the screws but to be sure it’s going to stay there I am going to put a spot of Sikaflex in the channel every couple of feet.
The hassle of returning it is not worth it and will be easy to fit and tidy up the door frame. As I said the other infill around the other doors can wait for now.
