5.0 Mustang Coupe Quarter Window Molding

The molding around my 1993 coupe quarter windows have pitted and are sun faded. I know the molding cannot be replaced by itself as the entire window must be replaced. I have used the search function without success so................. I'm posting this question. Those that have had this problem, what did you do to improve the appearance of the molding? Again, mine are pitted and need more than just a coat of flat black paint. I have also tried sanding them, but that really didn't help much either. I almost think I need some kind of filler to fill the pits before sanding and painting. What do you guys and gals suggest?

Thanks,
BMW5

Black shoe polish? Made mine look better. I'm surprised 5.0 resto hasn't made these yet.

Actually, they have made a cover for the moldings. I have seen a picture of the cover installed on a hatchback and wasn't impressed. Thanks for the reply.

Last year at the 09 ford carlisle show I bought the driver side quarter window with like new rubber no pitting just a few light scratches in the rubber with a perfect window glass for $10. An hour later I found a passenger side window that had some pits but was still in better shape than the one on my car for $20. Go to this show I promise you will not leave empty handed. It is the mecca of all ford parts shows on the east coast.

Even if you get new moldings, they'll eventually pit and degenerate just like the ones you have now. If you get new ones, have them painted and sealed to prevent future damage.

If you were to try to restore your old ones, you get some filler primer and then do the sand/fill/sand/fill until you get them smooth, then paint them.

Taz, thanks a lot. I believe Ace Hardware has the product also. I'm going to check and if I can't find it, I'll order from McMaster-Carr.

I wanted to let everyone know that I was able to find the "spray on" Plasti Dip at my local Home Depot. When the weather warms up a bit, I will give it a try.

Thanks,
