Trillium gravel guard screwcover molding?

Anybody have a clue what screwcover molding fits the front awning/ gravel guard on a Trillium? Hoping for mfr. name/part number etc...

I thought it was the same as that which goes around the rest of the windows, but discovered this to be untrue. Every bit of the trailer's done except that pesky front guard.

I've been through everything my local RV place has and I'm still comin' up empty...?

Thanks in advance!

Giving question a bump, since nothin' so far...and it doesn't seem possible that there could be a question about fiberglass trailers that no one here knows the answer to!

For clarification purposes:

The trim that does this job around the windows comes in eight foot lengths of "rigid" vinyl, and is identical to that seen at this link
I thought when I bought it that it would work up front, too, but it isn't wide enough.

Surely there's SOMETHING out there that fits- ?

Anyone?

Francesca, I found no screw cover on any of the five Trilliums at my place. The older ones had no provision for one, just a simple flange. The newer ones, (all the 4500's) have what appears to be a channel that something might snap into the middle of. Something like this maybe:
Elixir Screw Cover, Molding

Looks like 1/2" wide, so 9/16" might work.

Thanks, David...but Elixir 9/16th is exactly the same molding that I posted above and when I bought it for the rest of the trailer I thought it would fit the gravel guard, too, given the dimension. But it doesn't!

It's just a hair too small to snap on like it does on everything else on the trailer- even the access hatches I added a few years ago. Weird, huh????

Since I have never seen a Trillium with a screw cover on the rock guard, maybe they designed one, but never made one.

The same store has something that is 5/8" wide, or 1/16" more. Maybe this would work:
Philips Screw Cover, 5/8" Wide Overall, 12', Black

I'll warn you, I really don't know what I'm talking about, but while detailing the outside last weekend (for the first time), I discovered black channel screw covers on the bottom of the back and side windows and on three sides of the front windows under the rock guard. I took them off to clean them, but I think they are all the same. I can take a pic tomorrow if you want.

I stock screw cover stuff on my website, I have many 8ft sticks of colonial white and I can get polar white locally.
Look army website.

The screw covers on the windows are not the issue here. Those look like this:
Hehr Screw Cover, Molding
There appears to be a way to cover the screws on the rock guard. At least there is a channel, with barbs on both sides. But I have never seen a Trillium with the rock guard screws covered.

We are looking for something like this:
Philips Screw Cover, Rigid Molding, 5/8" Wide Overall, 8'

In fact that might be exactly what we are looking for.

Francesca, are you saying that you use this on your windows?:

As opposed to the link I have above? Could you post pictures?
