Flooring advice

We are in the process of refurbing our van, we have put down a wooden floor and chosen the vinyl but now struggling as to how to seal the edge at the sliding door - some kind of edging strip but not sure what as it needs to be about 1.5m long - anyone got any suggestions please?

Re: New foam for front seat
