    Default different color greys

    the light grey is from a 1987 XR7, the dark grey is from a turbo coupe. Both are 1987. Do they make the light grey in the tbird window shape? Or is it a Merc color only?

    Not to take away from your post, but when I stripped the inside of my cougar, all the moulded panels were stamped t-bird on the backs.
    Just thought that was weird.

    thanks, guys. In looking in the local JY's, I have yet to see another car with light grey. But, if they're out there, I'm looking for some interior pieces to make my cougar interior work in my TC.

    You can always paint some to match until you find the real ones
