They looked awful, Plastidip to the rescue.
my strips look fine but the end caps look like yours, it makes me sad
Mine look similar
Nice touch up. I'll curious to see how long it lasts.
Has anyone found a source for the end caps? Two of mine are completely gone and the other two are crumbling.
Is this a correct Taurus ( SHO or non) replacement? You would probably have to get a dealer parts person to dig for the end caps if they even offer them.
That's one of them. here are both part numbers
Thanks, Luigisho. I've seen those on the parts diagrams from Ford but haven't (yet?) found the end caps themselves. If I find them, I'll post the info.
The ends of mine at the back of the car are like lifted up. Been like it since i bought it, equally on both sides
This is unfortunately not something you can find. Looking at the parts catalog here at my shop there are only part numbers for the roof moldings. Unless someone makes aftermarket parts for it (unlikely) you'll have to either torch them to melt it back together and dip them, or shell out $150 a side assuming you're buying them from ford.
Thanks. It would be cool if someone with 3D printing experience would see if they could make new ones! I'm sure Ford wouldn't be happy about it, but ... it would certainly be worth it for the replacement parts market.
I have 3D printing experience and 3 3D printers, but what I don't have any experience with is those end caps cracking so I don't have an excuse to pull one off and model it.
Does anyone here happen to have a spare/scrap/salvage one sitting around that could be used as the model?
I need those end caps too !!!!!
There is no level of material for 3D printing that I would suggest to be used on the roof of a car. All the plastics would degrade fairly quickly.
You don't need someone with a 3D printer, you need someone capable of CAD.
