It will be some what costly but if you like the car and enjoy it wont it be worth fixing it?Im not sure the strips you are talking about.Are you talking about the body side moldings or the ones by the window.

The moldings you are talking about I believe are the body side moldings.They are in the middle of the door about half way up the door.Im not sure if they are avalible aftermarket yet.You might have to get them from the dealer.
