    Default new door weather strip?

    Im tryin to find some info on replacing all the window channel and dew wipe weather strip on my TC. The old sticky here about it is so old and out dated the part numbers are no good anymore.

    Anyone have any new relevant info on weather strip options?

    You have vent windows right? Then your options are Topaz, thunderbird, cougar, or lincoln dew wipes. No one makes them new so you'll have to source boneyards for some that aren't tore up.

    I think Im going to buy some dew wipes for a 79-86 mustang from Late Model Resto and see if they can be retro fitted to my doors.

    Mustang doors are much shorter.

    The tempo weatherstripping fits the vent window doors.
