Are you talking about the black decal

the ford ones are obsolete, and they were old stock before they killed them, so i wouldnt buy them if you find them, you can give the others a try

I used a rubberized bumper touch-up paint on my pillars, and I think they turned out pretty well. It was only a few months back, so we'll have to see how it holds up, though. It's a lot cheaper than the decals...

I have looked and looked at my 97. I swear it doesn't look like a decal to me. It looks like paint. And I'm pretty certain its factory. Doesn't matter though. I just got a can of black trim paint at O'Reilly's. One of these days I'm going to mask off the glass and paint and spray all my black trim so it looks good and matches.

I just ordered mine for 31$ shipped via UPS. They come as a pair and are real Ford parts.

It's not really a decal, it's an adhesive-backed piece of sheet aluminum painted black.
