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.

Did this ever melt on to the intercooler? Or did it hold up fine?
