pasta man, i sent a private message with this same explanation
but just in case,.....
you must be thinking of plain chrome vinyl striping tape
i used actual moulding or trim
that you peel off the 3m 2 sided tape liner
it is a rigid plastic that has a plastic chrome finish
similar to the door edge moulding you see in rolls
this is the same but is intended for sticking to a surface, not an edge
you stick it on and then peel off the clear protective film
it will last for years, and is easy and cheap to replace.
