All I can say is anything has to be better then those molded plastic strips.

IF IT WEREN'T FOR PHYSICS AND LAW ENFORCEMENT, I'D BE UNSTOPPABLE

Yes it would. Removing the rubber to make it work is totally acceptable but not what you said in your original comment and it is not the same as what is around the side windows.

Just sayin

Not the same Spitz as it does not have the squishy round rubber seal on it just the U shaped piece that attaches to the seam.

JC Witney has a lot of different selections and profiles.

I use this stuff: ProtektoTrim Truck Door Chrome Edge Guard
It comes in black too. They have other sizes, but the truck version is a little bit wider. You can get the same stuff at auto parts stores packaged in shorter sections, but this is a better deal.

Yes it is decent.
I took the chrome plastic trim and painted it the same colour as the car so it blended in.
