Mustang Coupe Quarter Windows
Properly restore the exterior of your 1987-1993 Mustang coupe with a set of brand new coupe quarter windows from Daniel Carpenter Reproductions! Over time, the moldings on your quarter windows start to deteriorate due to exposure to UV rays and the elements. You'll start to see pitting and fading which can quickly diminish the look of your coupe. Years ago you could still pick up a set of Carlite coupe quarter windows to remedy this issue, but ever since Carlite stopped making these windows they are hard to find and can cost thousands of dollars for an NOS set. Another option has been to have your factory windows refinished, but this process can take weeks and the results could be less than satisfactory. DCR set out to resolve this issue and the solution is this factory-quality coupe quarter window set at an economical price!

DCR Factory-Quality Construction
Daniel Carpenter Reproductions has been a trusted name in the Mustang community and known for producing high-quality products with factory fit and finish. These coupe quarter windows exceed that standard thanks to their meticulous attention to detail. Starting with the signature Mustang script in the back corner of the window, this text is licensed by Ford to meet their strict branding standards to ensure you're getting the same look as the original window. Each tempered glass window has a factory style frit band on the inside perimeter of the glass with correct dot matrix and is encapsulated with a modern, polyurethane blend compound to provide a factory look and finish that's DOT approved!

Factory Fresh Moldings
In most cases, the primary reason and need for new windows is the deteriorated moldings around your coupe quarter windows. Surrounding the perimeter and backside of these new windows is fresh molding throughout. DCR made it a point to slightly oversize this molding on the outside perimeter to ensure any cars that have been painted will not have an exposed paint line after installation which is common on refurbished windows. These moldings have the subtle, but necessary, grooved accent line that runs across the top of the window and down the rear slanted edge. New mounting studs with factory thread pitch are pre-installed to the backside of the window and align perfectly with the existing holes on the body of your coupe. LMR includes a 15' roll of 3M window sealer as well as new quarter window attaching nuts with pre-installed mastic sealer to ensure a leak free seal.

Installation Note
18 attaching nuts are included, but you will only need 14 for installation.
