Question Rubber strips on roof

Hey all... who knows what the two rubber strips that run along the edges of my roof are called? I have an '08 Fit, and when going through the car wash, one got torn off. I'm pretty sure they are just to cover the grooves and don't really serve a purpose other than asthetics, but it needs fixed. I described it to the dealer, and he knew what I was talking about, but after they told me how much they wanted to replace it, I was rolling on the floor laughing too hard to ask what they were called... Help?

In the online repair manual they are called roof mouldings. I have also heard them called filler strips.

We'd like to roll on the floor laughing at the dealers' ridiculous price...hint-hint (mind sharing?)

And good luck with the DIY.

Maybe you can post pics & tips when you're done.
