8R3Z-6321456-A
7R3Z-6321457-A

Sorry if this is old news.
So in looking for those part numbers i see 2 options at the site im looking at.

8R3Z6321456A
Door - Interior trim - Belt w strip
Belt w strip Right 2005 - 2007

8R3Z6321456A

Belt w strip Right 2008 - 2009

I would think even though i have an 05, I would want the 08+ style, unless they are most likley the same.

Agreed. Tint Protector Felt is all you need. Don't buy the cheap moleskin felt. It will fall off. Been there done that. Tint Protector felt is the only one that works.

FWIW, my 07 had just rubber but the 09 has some type of fuzzy stuff.

8R3Z6321456A and the other number listed above is the right part number. Ford fixed the soft side of the strip after 2008. I bought them, 2008 version for my 2006 GT from newfordparts.com and they fit great and stopped the scratching.

Thumbs up

Or just buy the Tint Protector felt kit for $25. It's 1/3 of the price of buying brand new ford seals and does the same job just as well.

Here is the link to the Tint Protector Mustang Forums members special price.

This may have answered my question, but I'll comment anyway.

I have a 2010, and the inside weather stripping seems to be pretty soft. I'm wondering if anyone has has scratching problems with tint on a 2010. Or if anyone's tinted a 2010 with the moleskin felt installed.

NO the 2010 Mustang already has felt from the factory. No need to buy anything.

The 2005 - 2008 needs the Tint Protector kit.

I think all the 07's didn't have felt on the inside of the weather strip.

The Mustang is the easiest of all the Tint Protector felt kits to install. You just pop out the weather strip and apply.

Default Anyone buffed out their windows?

Ok... read all the posts.... still have questions....

I've got my older son's 99 for my youngest to use in a couple years.
Windows look like crap.
Older son said the tint was peeling so he cut it off.
THAT's when it really looked like holy hell.

The OUTSIDE has fine scratches. Inside is smooth. Outside refracts light. If it catches the light just right it's like looking thru milk. Running water down the outside fills in the scratches and it becomes clear again. Here in TX that water isn't on there very long. I'm tempted to wax the windows or coat them.
Barring that, I may try and buff them out. Never tried before but they are very fine.
Of course I will replace the outer window seals.
Looking at the rear window tint, I have to understand his cutting out the windows. Must have been put in by a trained ape. Back looks more like bubble wrap than anything else now. Presumably the window tint made it harder to see the refracted light from the outer scratches.

Anyone buffed out their windows.... successfully?
