I put together a few diagrams to show everyone what all the Window Mouldings are called, and where they are found on the 89-97 Thunderbird..

This should save us all some time..

Ray,

Any chance of digging up the part numbers for the quarter glass moldings with the chrome for the earlier models? I know the parts are discontinued but would like to add to the list.

Np..I went ahead, and added some other useful Ford Part Numbers for the earlier Thunderbirds as well..

These Part Numbers should be useful as our cars age, and we're looking for those rare parts..

By the way..Thanks for Stickying this..

:thumbsup:

wow. almost depressing seeing them all discontinued.
At least if you have the part #s at hand..You can order NOS off Ebay or wherever...

Jason FordPartsCounter has been a reliable source for me for Ford Parts for awhile..

He's pretty good at tracking down some of the discontinued stuff as well..

This is AWESOME! It was very hard when I still had some of my molding for sale off my lemons tbird to describe what I had to a buyer to confirm that was the exact part he needed.

B-Pillar Paint Code

IIRC Ford did away with the Vinyl Tape on the B-Pillars starting in 94..

Of course I've heard of some MN12's with the Vinyl Tape, and some with paint.. :zdunno:


As far as the paint goes..When Ford started painting the B-Pillars..They used Paint Code YGYA..

I cross referenced this with the PPG paint codes..The PPG Paint Code for the B-Pillar is 9741..

Oh here's a link to the YGYA paint in an aerosol can--->>89-97 MN12 B-Pillar Paint

Any satin black trim paint will do. I used DupliColor Black Trim paint I got from the local auto parts store, it's held up well. I scuffed the surface with a scotchbrite pad before painting.

Problem(or benefit in certain applications actually) with plastidip is it's easily removable, and can come off after a while. Best off using something like Swanny mentioned if you want it to stay looking good. I used the same stuff.

Question about the door belt weather stripping, how do you treat it so the black substance doesn't rub off on everything from clothes to chamois?

The Door Belt Weatherstrip like many of the black rubber/plastic exterior mouldings are prone to UV damage..

When they start to break down from UV damage..They will give off a black residue on your detailing towel..

Usually what I do when I'm detailing my Thunderbird is..Save all the cleaning of the black rubber/plastic exterior mouldings for last..

Then apply Mothers Back to Black on them..It's smeary so try to keep it on the trim/mouldings only..

I've been using the stuff for years on everything from interior to exterior black rubber/plastic pieces with great success..

As you can see most of the Thunderbird Mouldings have been discontinued so prolonging the life of them is highly recommended..

Once you start applying the Back to Black regularly you'll notice after a few times the luster of these pieces returning to what they looked like originally..

The black residue that you get on your detailing towel will never go away completely when cleaning these bits..

But the Back to Black will help preserve them, and lessen the black residue you see on your detailing towels or clothes in your case..

Thank you, I have Back to Black, but I haven't used it much. I got some on the roof drip molding and it turned it streaky white in sections, and I can't remove it. I'll be more careful, and just use it on the appropriate trim pieces.

I forgot to mention..You should clean the mouldings thoroughly before applying Back to Black

A small sponge, and rubbing alcohol should be sufficient..

That white streaking you see is probably left over wax..That needs to be cleaned off first with the rubbing alcohol..

Try to apply the Back to Black quickly so there is a UV barrier protecting your trim/mouldings..
