    Default 2 door weatherstripping?

    Trying to source weatherstripping for my 84 Grand Marquis 2 door. Need doors and trunk. Any ideas where to source these new? I found the door felt strips but no luck on the others yet.

    You'll probably need two packs of the door weather strip since the mustang door is a little smaller.

    Are these listings for 4 door or 2 door?
    I just ordered the door felt that attaches to door panel with the chrome lip and it was not cheap.

    If it's the dew wipe on RockAuto, it's trim to fit. 48 inches should be enough. You can take a tape measure and check your door length. And that's actually really inexpensive.

    If you mean the weatherseal for the door, there's several options and yes, they are not cheap, but they're not very expensive compared to getting them from Ford for anything that's not discontinued. My Expedition weatherstrip is about $130 per door from Ford. I can get the extended cab aero F150 weatherstrip from Amazon for a third the price and trim it to fit and probably outfit two doors for the price of one making the cost even less.

    But without knowing which link you followed and what you actually purchased, I don't know if it will fit. Most of the stuff is trim to fit universal style stuff though, so some work will be required to make things fit.

    I ordered a door felt kit from Steele Rubber Products says vehicle specific. Now I’m looking for the actual door and trunk seals that go on the pinch welds

    Read the thread I linked. There's a lot of info there. Also, you'll probably need the universal stuff for the doors and trunk since the OE seals are either dried up old stock or dust by now.

    Forget the 2dr strip, have not been available for at least 30 years!. For my '86 Tudor I ordered two four door strips and joined them together.

    Been watching this for a while. I just have gotten burned with NOS weatherstripping before. I picked up NOS window run channels (the bits the window slides in the door with and those dried up so damn fast. This may be okay as it is a different material?

    Here is a NOS dew wipe. I have modified the back side of the trim to fit a vent window car as I could only find a NOS dew wipe metal trim that was for a NON vent window car. I did not use the rubber as it was dry.

    I am eager to see how your dew wipes turn out with what you purchased. I need to replace my inner dew wipes. They turned rock hard. I have never replaced them..just the outers.
