Sandwiched between the drip rail molding and the screw on metal roof rail weatherstripping retainer is a foam strip ~1" wide. I looked in the NPD catalog but couldn't find it. Did I miss it or is this a generic item?

In case you don't have the body assembly manual, it calls out "ESB-M4G32-A Black Sealer .06 x .75".
I doubt that'll help much, Google didn't know anything about it, but there it is.
FWIW,
Dennis

you can probably substitute for a generic foam strip. If you do though, use closed cell foam. Just my .02.

It looks to me like 1/16" glass setting tape would work pretty well.

You can also check with a local glass installer to see if they have some.

Edit... also NPD carried 1/16" window glass setting tape if you decide to use it...

I've always used general hardware type foam insulating tape with good results.

There is a mustang vender that sells it (Dallas Mustang, I think) but I just used closed cell foam from Home Depot. Worked fine...
Good luick,
Jim

I bought some 3M tape that worked well, I got it at a local paint supply house when I was still in Oregon. I don't remember the part #

I used 3M double sided tape in the 1/2" width and just ran two side by side strips. The double sided tape also helps seal the metal trim strip to the body.
