Finally, an option to the chalky, weathered moldings on factory 87-93 Fox Mustang Coupe quarter windows! This is a pair of quarter window molding Covers for your 1987-1993 Mustang Coupe. These covers fit on top of your existing moldings. They are made of black plastic and have a smooth, non textured finish. The covers come ready to install and can be painted to match your Mustang.
The rubber molding is part of the quarter window & cannot be serviced separately or replaced. These covers are a great economical solution to hide those unsightly putted & grungy moldings!
Installation Note - Adhesive IS included. For best results we recommend the use of Windshield Urethane to attach these covers to your quarter glass molding. Windshield Urethane requires a special primer to adhere properly, so be sure to pick some up if you attempt this yourself. This will ensure the best possible & longest lasting installation. The easiest solution is to run by the local glass shop & allow them to affix them for you.

Clean up the exterior of your Fox Body Mustang with a set of quarter window covers for hatchback and coupe Mustangs. The quarter windows on these Stangs are notorious wearing down due to weathering and other environmental exposures. In the past, the only fix was to completely replace the quarter windows and with the Ford originals getting harder and harder to find this option is becoming harder to do. Thankfully there is another solution - 5.0Resto quarter window covers
They are available for both coupe and hatchback models. These covers will hide the ugly worn molding on your Fox Body Mustang. Click on the link above to see our full selection of quarter window components that includes covers, hardware and even replacement glass!
1987 to '93 Fox Mustang coupe and hatch quarter windows are prone to degrading rubber on the glass trim, otherwise known as becoming a little crusty. This rubber trim is bonded to the window glass and is not replaceable separately. The economical solution is a set of our quarter window trim covers. Yes, you can tell that they are covers, but they are a cost-effective solution to an eyesore of a problem.
Before installation, we recommend giving them a couple of coats of our exterior trim paint. For the actual installation process, we recommend dropping by a local auto glass shop and having them attach the covers to your quarter windows with some of their urethane windshield adhesive.

DO NOT TRY AND ATTACH THESE COVERS WITH YOUR WINDOWS STILL ON THE VEHICLE! IN ORDER TO INSTALL THESE CORRECTLY AND STAY ATTACHED YOU NEED TO REMOVE THE WINDOWS FROM THE CAR. DO NOT USE THE SUPPLIED GLUE AS IT WILL NOT HOLD FOR THE LONG HAUL INSTEAD USE 3M WINDOW WELD. TAKE YOUR TIME AND CAREFULLY SAND DOWN THE DRIED UP EDGE OF YOUR ORIGINAL MOLDING SO THAT THE GLUE HAS SOMETHING TO HOLD ONTO. USE A LOT OF C-CLAMPS AND PAINT STIR STICKS AS CLAMPING PADS TO HOLD THE NEW COVER IN PLACE WHILE GLUING. LEAVE THE CLAMPS IN PLACE FOR A WEEK YES A WEEK! AFTER THE GLUE IS CURED TEST FIT THE WINDOW BACK ON YOUR CAR AND CHECK FOR GAPS. YOU MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE TO FILE DOWN THE EDGE AS THE NEW MOLDING COVER WRAPS AROUND THE EXISTING ROTTEN EDGE OF YOUR ORIGINAL MOLDING A LITTLE BIT. ONCE YOU ARE SATISFIED WITH THE FIT NOW YOU CAN MASK OFF THE GLASS AND SCUFF THE NEW COVER WITH A GREY SCOTCH BRITE PAD. USE BULL-DOG ADHESION PROMOTER AND PAINT WITH SOME SEM TRIM BLACK. THE RAW FINISH OF THESE COVERS ARE WAY TO SHINNY THAT'S WHY I PAINT WITH TRIM BLACK SO IT MATCHES THE REST OF THE OTHER MOLDINGS. IF YOU DON'T HAVE THE AMOUNT OF TIME IT TAKES OR A LOT PATIENCE THIS IS NOT FOR YOU.
Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

Quarter Window Covers
Gary M. on
I ordered these covers for an SSP Mustang that I recently purchased in hopes that I could make my quarter window trim look good again. I am just not sure that I will use these covers on that car. I think that they would be great on a daily driver, but just not this car. The quality look good enough, but I just do not like the looks on the SSP Mustang.
