Decklid foam strips

after a very long time of searching i finally found some grey foam with an adhesive backing that i can use to replicate the 2 foam pads that are under the gt/cs decklid at the spoiler (page 97 of the 1996 registry book).
i am willing to share my find with all of you if you're interested. all i ask for is a self addressed STAMPED envelope from you. the foam comes as a 3" X 5" piece and you will have to cut it to size yourself. in a previous post, i had asked if anyone had the original size. i was given this: length- 4.5", width- 7/8", thickness-3/16". i used a very sharp razor blade to cut mine and they look great! right now i have about 12 extras, first come first serve. i will try and get more if i run out.
i will post a couple of picture links. the pic of the one that is installed on my gt/cs is very light due to the flash. it is actually a dark grey as you will se in the other pic. if you have any questions, e-mail me. Talan423@aol.com

Tom, you need to be logged in to post pictures. You're posting as a guest at the moment.

Although you would still need to resize your photos since they're too big to upload.

Re:Decklid foam strips

What is the purpose of this foam? Does it protect something on the quarter ext.? I put the HCS/CS style decklid on my '66 and am wondering if I actually need this piece, or if it's just for those of you wanting the correct look. ???

Re:Decklid foam strips

It was used to stop the trunk lid from banging and rattling against the endcaps and lower light panel. The Shelby used a bolt with a rubber top as a stop but the CS did not. I believe the Shelby's bolt/rubber knobs where also used to align the trunk lid with the end caps.
