brak Gary - thanks, I think they are the way to go. Now that I am looking at their site - man, it would have been good to know about a few projects ago! They have absolutely everything.

GaryHLucas McMaster Carr is a fabulous company, I've been dealing with them for 25 years at least. They just moved their NJ location to 3 miles from where I grew up, and it is on my way to work, so I can pick up in will call too. 600,000 sq ft of 36' high bay warehouse! They have absolutely the best return policy of anybody. You don't like it, return it no questions asked they take it back.

brak battens might work if they are thin and long - I guess that'd be my last resort option.

McMasters site looks like a treasure chest I'll definitely dig around.

ccriders Maybe battens used for boat storage covers? WM has them, but also probably any marine supply.

svHyLyte Why not strips of Teak or Mahogony?

Plastic trim

Ok, so this is an interior cabin project and the question is not very "boat like".

I've got ceiling panels that are fastened directly to the top on one side. On the other they meet with a small gap and need something to "hang" them with. Previous method was an aluminum "H" extrusion - and worked poorly (plus, it's pretty much gone by now).

All I need is a flat stock of plastic (any kind, really - PVC, polypropylene etc), about 1.5-2" wide, not too thick but strong enough to hold ceiling panels.

Sounds trivial, I know - but I've exhausted my Google search possibilities and all the usual suspect boat and hardware shopping sites with no results.

If anyone knows where a thin, hard plastic strip can be found - please help!
