Default Bonnet scuttle nose join

I'm currently fitting my bonnet (Haynes roadster) and would like to know and if you have pics available that would greatly help of the trim / seal people have used, I don't like the look of the U trim that slots onto the bonnet, I would prefer a seat type rubber or neoprene that sites on the recess of nose/scuttle, but I'm open to see what others have used
If you have images/links to products that would be a great help 😃

I think most people go for the U crimp on trim as it's the most simple way of covering the sharp edge of the bonnet and keeps the IVA inspector happy. If you try and add the required radi/radious to the edge of the bonnet of a fully cured GRP part it stands the chance of shearing off, it would need to be done at the laminating stage.
