Ah gotcha, yeah I'd just make them at that point. It's too easy on these they are literally a flat piece with a couple holes.

Once I get the point of putting em back on I'll figure out wjatll work best. Right now I just want the basics to work so I can start driving it. Windows, leaks etc

Yeah, I just kept an eye out and found a nice set of tan ones for mine. I didn't think LMC ones were worth what they think they are worth especially when they are not the same as original. Stock up on door handles when you find them too, they like to break.

Red would be nice to find parts for, it seems to have been all the rage in the 80's.

Yeah between the tailgate and the door panels I'm now doing a bit more forum research on their parts to see if they are replacement or reproduction style.
Good point on the handles. Think I'll make a stop by the junkyard again next weekend.

I slid the seal out of the trim a little so you can see it better.



It fit as well as what was on it did. Ford seems to have stuck the bottom DS side mounting stud 1/8" too deep so the clip won't grab the trim... but the old trim was the same way.

Ik, nice looks just like the original just not dry rotted and painted. Looks like I'll order a set and some panel epoxy get this thing sealed up and windshield replaced.

Thanks

I don't know anyone that sells it new, this is off a second generation from the JY.

It is kind of fuzzy because it was a constant evolution, the closest thing to a clean slate was in '93 and more so in '98.
