How do you solve the problem of a ton of debris getting caught in that gap between the trunk lid and your car's body?
I generally like my Honda Civic, but one problem it's always had is that the rim along the trunk lid always fills up with a ton of plant debris. Leaves, twigs, seeds, dirt, small animals, pieces of Skylab, that sort of thing.
I've had 5 other cars before this one, and every one of them has that gap between the body and the trunk lid, but they've never filled up so quickly with crap the way my Civic does. Even worse, whenever I open the lid, the rim is ever so slightly angled so that a lot of that debris falls into the trunk. Come fall, there are more leaves inside my car than outside my car.
So that got me thinking, is there anything like a "gutter guard" that I can install in that gap, which will keep out debris, but still allow rainwater to flow into it? I guess I could epoxy in some light black plastic mesh in there, but I have to believe I'm not the first person to have this problem.
