I have a similar concern on an old van we had, i purchased a 2.7m x 35mm Flat Aluminum floor trim just in case. The old trim came off ok, slightly bent, but went back on ok after sealing and new stainless steal screws.

I cut away the old sealant carefully.

Hi Mick

Thanks for the info I think we will try to seal every inch of trim before we go away and look into replacing with new sealant and screws when we get back as my hubby thinks it is quite brittle. Not sure how much a professional would charge to do the job?
