Default Edge Trim for FMIC Bumper Cuts

So after hacking up my front bumper in order to accommodate the DR525 FMIC, I wasn't completely satisfied with the edges of where I made the cuts. Though I sanded it down smooth, it still didn't look right to me.

I searched for some rubber edge trim that people may have been using to give it a cleaner look. Though Mcmaster-carr has a wide variety of styles to choose from, I was looking for something locally. A few guys recommended a 3M "L" style trim, but I couldn't locate this in retail stores. Thanks to Bardrcr, he found an edge trim that is thin enough to sit securely, and also has slight adhesion to keep it in place. The company is Cowles, and it is called "Edge Trim" in the color black. For $6.99 at a local Kmart you can't go wrong. I believe Advanced Auto Parts carries it too.

I may take the bumper off again to apply the trim to the edges to make it uniform, but I think it looks good.
