Windscreen rubber white

Bought this on Sunday pm, arrived Tuesday am. Just the ticket for boats / runabouts needing a smaller profile screen rubber and not black.

Almost!
Mine needs to fit a 5mm thick screen
This is max 3mm.

I have used this on my Waverider screen and found that it only lasts about a year. The boat lives outside with a Bradshaw's top grade tarpaulin as a cover so is not greatly protected from UV, although I put a rolled up towel over the top of the screen to save the tarp from a sharp edge which should act as an effective UV barrier. After a while the trim turns from shiny silver to milky white and splays out. I have looked for a suitable sized aluminium extrusion but not managed to find anything. If anyone knows of a better alternative I'd be grateful.
