Roof gutter trim
« on: July 17, 2017, 08:28:16 PM »
So after buying some of this http://cowlesproducts.com/oldcontent/wp/how-to-choose-door-edge-guards/ on recommendation of either here or some other forum, this stuff is useless. I did everything it said to do but if it's on your car one hot day it shrinks then expands and basically leaves a gooey sticky mess on the gutter. Finally after a year of suffering I removed it and left the gutter bare. I really liked the rigid factory molded stuff which is NLA. Any suggestions?

Dave, Tried that stuff too. Not that great trying to make the transition from the side to the front.

A heat gun helps that....

Frankly I'm not that keen on any trim on the gutter......

 I agree it looks better with out the trim if the gutter isn't a mess like mine.

I've always considered roof gutter to be problematic and toss it in the trash.  It inevitably rubs the paint as it loosens over time, becomes brittle, and will suddenly lift off the gutter at highway speeds.  Plus it tends to hold debris.
