Nylon, easy to cut (hacksaw), easy to shape (grinder or course file), easy to smooth
(cratex wheel or sandpaper). Works beautifully. I'll probably tweak it a bit since this the
first attempt. Nylon is very slippery, flexable & strong <perfect>. All it needed was a slightly longer screw & a.washer underneath to screw it firmly to the metal yet rest on top of the rubber. Plus I trimmed back the leading edge of the rubber so it wouldn't try to pinch the fabric. If the nylon piece is much longer or taller it binds with metal on the other half of the window frame when closed together(top up).
I was just noticing that pinch point in the last few weeks.
Wondered what was causing it. Now I need to take it back to the dealer for a fix.
