Guys, I have been waiting on Jegs to send me a set of Anti rattlers (window felts) for my 66 Galaxie fastback, and today they told me they have no idea of when Repops will be making them. Does anyone else make the rubber felts for a 66 Galaxie. Any help is appreciated. I also called Dennis Carpenter with no luck.

I did try AutoKrafters as well. I am pretty sure they told me they sell Repops as well. Repops says they had a tooling issue, and now saying they have had material on back order for 2 months.

Hello Trip,

I have ordered 2 complete sets; one for a 1966 4 door hardtop (LTD) and one for a 1966 2 dr hardtop (gal 500 XL) from Obsolete and Classic Car Parts.

Fullsize-Ford-and-Mercury 1 Obsolete & Classic Auto Parts Catalogs

I haven't installed the 2dr hardtop ones yet but they look correct compared to the old ones. I have installed the 4 door hardtop ones and they were spot on.

They do make their own in house and saved my bacon because I couldn't find them for a 57F body (4 door hardtop) and when I called inquiring if they knew someone who did make them they said hymmmmm, well we make our own in house. They didn't have a listing for a 57F either but asked me some measurement questions and 10 minutes later called me back and said no problem.

Just thoughts.

Cheers

I made my own with the fuzzy side of Velcro. They don't really contact the glass but I'm not sure the originals did, either
