<_< Great topic. Mine was all rusted and stained. I removed it, cleaned it up and spray-painted it with a GLOSS WHITE Primer. It looks o.k.

Just curious Joseph, did you have to reglue it when you put it back on?
This new stuff looks like all you do is kind of pinch it on.

Mine was both glued and pinched on, so that is how I put the new stuff on. I used butyl caulk in a tube and shot it into the bottom of the V on the new trim piece.

I found that the two seam halves of the roof are not parallel, so the trim piece has a hard time biting the gelcoat well enough to be really secure.

Thanks Tom, this is good to know!

Yep, I squeezed some DAP caulk into the groove of the trim piece and pressed it back in place. It fit pretty well since it went back right where it came from. Oh, I did clean up the silicone mess that was originally applied. Wow.I didn't know new trim was available.
