I noticed that the trim had come away from the gas door surround, I tried putting it back on a few times. It just kept coming away again.
I tried contacting a few dealers, but only one got in touch, after giving a description of what I needed and the van details, I never heard back?
Anyway, I contacted a seller on eBay and they sent out two samples. The 12mm domed one fits beautifully, so will order up 4mtrs. Here, you can see the old one coming away, then the new bead in place. The last photo is where I got it from on eBay. Hope this helps someone else.

I had lifting trim on my last van and did what was supposed to be a temporary fix. I teased out and cleaned the trim where it was lifting and bedded it back into place with some Geocel Roofers Mate I use in DIY. 4 or 5 years later when I sold the van it was still good, so a useful solution for small areas.. https://www.screwfix.com/p/geocel-trade-...rey-310ml/72630

I think mine has shrunk or something, it just peels off the at a corner, when I try fitting it back on.
Good fix though Collin.

Same thing happened to our van [05 Troll], so I bit the bullet and did the whole van, changed the colour to dark blue and gave all the screw a tweak at the same time

We did the same on our old PuckL, thought it would be the only one with dark blue trim. Seems I was wrong, we’re obviously the ones with taste Dave 😁
