1981-1984 Mustang 5.0 Resto T-Top To Body Weatherstrip
Seal up the T-Tops in your 1981-1984 Fox Body Mustang with this new 5.0 Resto T-Top to body weatherstrip to prevent leaks and wind noise. Worn and torn weatherstripping not only looks bad, it can prevent your T-Tops from properly sealing. This weatherstrip mounts on the body around the T-top opening, then runs down the windshield and quarter posts.
To determine the build date of your Mustang please refer to the date on the upper left corner of your VIN sticker located in your driver door jamb. If a VIN sticker is not available, please refer to the following measurements. These measurements reference the length of the pillar-post portion of the t-top weatherstrip.
-1981-1984 (built before 10/83) - 38" Some early 1981-82 T-top Mustangs had a pillar length of approximately 23". For these applications, it would be best to use the 1984-86 weatherstrip, and glue down the extra 3" of weatherstrip.
-1984 (built from 10/83)-1986 - 26"
-1987-1988 - 30"
-Fits 1981-84 Mustang made before October of 1983.
These pieces are relatively easy to install. Was harder removing the old stuff. Fitment wasn't exactly what I envisioned. Still have gaps between my window and the weather stripping even after installing the rope sealer but haven't tried adjusting the windows yet. We shall see.
