Mustang T-Top Beaded Felt Weatherstrip
The felt weatherstrip protects against wind noise and direct exposure to rain on your 1981-1988 Ford Mustang Fox Body T-Top. Located at the front and rear edge of the roof where the T-top meets the body and running the total width of the roof. When worn, the orange/blue rubber bead is usually visible and the felt is torn. Two required per car.
This job was definitely more of a pain than I initially thought it'd be. The new felts are thicker than the old ones. The old ones are actually mounted on a thin metal track that is riveted to the edge of the roof. Removing the old adhesive from the car was not fun. The 3m adhesive tape that came on the new felts was useless, and was so old that it was crumbling off. Lots of time spent removing the old 3m tape from the new felts which IMO end added too much thickness anyway. You're gonna need some good weatherstripping adhesive (which isn't mentioned on the product page) and lots of painters tape, and patience. The end result sure is a lot better than having those old torn felts showing....but this job was definitely more work than I'd anticipated.
Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

Absolutely horrible glue
J Creech on
I bought 2 of these to replace my old ones which were non existent. These are a lot like the old weatherstrips but not identical, the metal plate that the guy in the previous review mentions are made into the strips. You can discard the factory ones. But its not removing the factory parts that makes this job hard because the caps that the weatherstipping is glued to is only held in by 8 rivets per strip, remove those and you can do the job off the car. But also like the guy in the previous review stated, the glue on these aftermarket strips is horrible and make what should be a very simple job an absolute chore. I'm trying to use yellow 3M weatherstip adhesive to fix this, as I'm typing its out front drying.
For reference I'm replacing these on a 1986 GT and I have 4 years experience in collision repair.

Just a quick note to say what great people (Eddie Davis) are at Latemodel Restoration. I ordered and bought a set of Track Pack Wheels for my 2014 Mustang GT.Their prices and service is the BEST in the MUSTANG INDUSTRY, not only the price and service but the honesty. The wheels came thru with the wrong center caps one call to Eddie Davis corrected the situation in one phone call and the next day I had the center caps (FORD RACING) the correct ones no BS, they just did the Right Thing,whereas in this Day and Age you don't here that often.
