Thread: '83-'86 Window Weatherstripping

    At the salvage yard today I pulled the weatherstripping off a 93 2-door Tempo and tried to install it on a 83 Bird. It fit in the back corner just fine, but as I worked it down toward the front, it ended up being about 3 inches to short.

    I didnt compare a 92 to a 93, I will try that next time, but the 93 definately doesnt fit.

    Well, that's a bummer. I was almost sure that the dimensions were equal. I was very careful about that before I put it in the article, but I guess I was wrong. I have updated the threads to include this new information.
    I suppose this project is only good for the vent window people.

    Anybody know if they make "dew wipe" replacements for 87 - 88's? One of mine was destroyed when the car was broken in to.

    Thanks for the info, as the dew wipes and the trim around the windows in general are looking pretty ratty on my '83

    Well, I just replaced the dew wipe on the drivers side of my car about a week ago. And I must say it was worth the cost and the time to replace it. I'll replace the passenger side within the next week or so. And I owe it all to this thread!! U GUYS RAWK!

    If you look at lincoln Mark 7 the inside dew/ belt molding fits, it is 3/8in. longer and the window channel run is the same for non vented windows.
