Mustang Master Body Side Molding Kit
Restore the exterior of your Fox Mustang with this 1979-1984 Mustang master body side molding kit! Your body side moldings run along the center of the body, on the left and right side of your Fox. These moldings usually become wrinkled during removal, and are unable to be straightened back out due to the metal banding inside; thus replacing them is the only option to get a set of straight moldings. This kit includes every piece of molding along the driver, and passenger, side of your 1979-1984 Mustang!
5.0 Resto Quality
This high quality molding kit features a molded urethane construction that arrives ready for prep and paint. The recessed C-Channel for the stripe accepts the several different stripes offered in this year range. Automotive grade double sided tape is pre-installed to secure the molding to your Fox after paint. The steel reinforcement bands were intentionally left out to prevent kinks that show through the molding. You won't find a better molding kit for your Fox restoration project!
Due to the use of several different bumpers over this year range, the profile of the molding may not match up perfectly with the molding of the bumper. This is evident in Ford original moldings as well as these reproduction moldings. See our 79-84 molding page to see these profile imperfections on low mile Fox Mustangs.
I needed this kit since I just had my 84 LX in the body shop this summer for restoration. the old ones are not reusable once removed.
At first glance the repros look fantastic and overall I am happy but the Daniel Carpenter repros do not come with steel backing like the original equipment did and the repros have rounded edges instead of squared edges like the originals had.
It would almost be unnoticeable except that the front and rear bumper covers have the molding shaped molded into them so on the four corners that the repro molding meets the front and rear bumper covers the mismatch is painfully obvious.
I highly suggest taking that info to Daniel Carpenter and asking them to re-mold this kit to make it a better match. Also if your gonna advertise steel backing, make sure they put steel backing in the product. Mine were just vinyl.
