WTB Driver's door exterior moulding

Need the driver's door moulding for my 93 Tbird. Don't care about the color, just want one that's not bent. I took mine off thinking I'd do no door guards...didn't like the look, bent mine taking them off.

YOu need to use a long razor or wedge to remove it... It can be rolled once off the car...just not bent

Yeah, I've got my eye on that set. Too bad I only need one side Not too bad a price. I'm also looking at car-parts.com with some feelers out.

Thanks for the link though

You do realize these are color coded from the factory right?

Which means they aren't painted, after the fact..

I'm not sure that's going to look very good if you try painting them, or how well the paint will adhere..

Post your results..

When I had my car repainted, the shop did repaint the door trim pieces. I guess as long as the prep is good and the right paint is used, there's no reason it wouldn't hold up well.

The early gens mouldings are made of rubber, which paint does not usually adhere to as well as plastic..Like what's used on the 96-97 models..

Are they just dyed from the factory then or what?

They're solid rubber of the color ALL the way through. The paint I put on can bend some with it, but not too much or it'll crack. I've painted the one on their now, it's fine. Sand it, primer it, paint and clear. Looks fine.

They are solid, the color which matches the car and molded in such a way when they come out, they're shiny, like fresh paint, but it's just shiny rubber.

They have metal as the base, which you have to be VERY careful when removing, or it'll bend (as I found out)

I found a new OEM one for a cougar, a black one on eBay. Last left side one they had...perhaps the last in the country New Old Stock. It's painted and curing before I put it on this week.

The trick to keeping them nice... don't park next to someone

Peeled the old moulding off and tossed it. It curves if it's not pulled off correctly and puts stress on the adhesive which eventually buckles... That's rubber adhesive, not pulled off paint


Put the new painted on on. It's nice and straight, no buckles.




I've still got the full set I bought used online too, so guess I have spares.
