Door protectors for roof bars

I have a set of 'official' Renault roof bars for my current Laguna II hatch which I'm planning to use on the new Laguna II hatch that'll be replacing it tomorrow.

The original kit came with four adhesive strips to put on the top edges of the doors. The best way I can describe them is as roughly 3" long pieces of very thick Sellotape. These are permanently fixed to the edges of the doors to prevent the paintwork from making direct contact with the feet of the bars when the doors are closed.

I've checked with the dealer, and you can't buy them without buying another set of roof bars. I don't think they'd survive the removal and refitting process, though I might give it a go. But failing that, I'm looking for a suitable substitute.

Any ideas?
