Matching Belly Band

Changed out the black trim for red. I have to say, I wasn't sure I was going to like it, but I think it looks fantastic. It even comes close to matching the slightly darker "garnet red" graphics on the trailer.

Where did the trim come from and how hard was it to replace the original?

We also got matching colors - black and black!
(Okay, not much imagination on our part.)

$16 on Ebay. You want the 1" with the profile seen in the link - not the flat kind. Easy peezy to install. Remove two screws holding down the trim end caps on either side of the door, pull the old one out, and insert the new. You can just tuck the top or bottom edge in first, then use your finger or thumb to bend the strip into the other channel. Or, you can use a thin plastic tool, which I didn't bother with. Took about 10 minutes. Lots of colors are available. A 50' roll was perfect for the 19, with about 6-7' to spare.
