This piece fits between the upper plastic molding and the body of the car. Like a gasket, its purpose will help seal the body from dirt and debris, and protect it from chafing between the body of the car and the upper molding. Constructed with Ford original tooling and OE style materials, this piece will be a direct replacement for your original. Overall this one should take you a solid afternoon to complete.

Today in the shop, we have a 1987 Fox Body convertible that we will be working on. Let’s go ahead and show you how to put these lower moldings on. Below we have added all of the products that were used in this article:

  3. Once the upper well moldings are off, you can now access the lower moldings. The driver's and passenger side will both be held in place with four plastic push pins. Using a plastic trim removal tool, carefully pull each of these out from the body of the car. Make sure that you do not discard these push pins, they will be reused on the new moldings.

  3. On our application, the center lower molding did require us to drill a few new holes for the outer studs. To do this, take the lower center molding and press it down firmly onto the upper molding stud. Make an indention in the rubber. Go ahead and drill out the two new indentions you made with a 9/64" drill bit.
