Default Capping a 2X8 need vinyl or alum. 2X2X2..??

I need to cap off the edge of a 2X8 lengthwise. I need a cap that fits a 2X8 possibly 2X2X2 and about 12 feet in length. does anyone know if they have this readymade in vinyl or aluminum whichever would be cheaper. [_]<< is kind of what I need in length.

Sometimes we just get stuff made at a sheet metal shop, they have alum. or steel pre-painted.

Why not just use a hand rail from the decking department of your lumber store. Find them with an 1-1/2 inch rabbet groove in them to mount on a 2x edge. PT, cedar or composite...... Otherwise...as stated above, just go to a sheetmetal shop and have them bend a piece of alu flashing for you...cheap and easy.
