For automotive interior trim molding assemblies having a vinyl skin shell, a reinforcement insert, and an intermediate reaction type polyurethane foam composition, a vinyl skin shell which has a gasket-type peripheral edge formed thereon for abutting cooperation with the reinforcement insert to prevent leakage of the foam therepast during the foam reaction period in a reaction mold. The gasket-type peripheral edge is formed on the otherwise thin shell by a tear edge, against which plastisol builds up in a substantially triangular cross section during the shell molding period in a heated slush mold.
