I've been clicking around and searching for the past few days and I cannot seem to find anything that has a functioning link to the window seals that I need. as you can see from the picture, The seals on the inside are okay but the seals on the outside are absolutely tarnished. I've seen links posted for JC Whitney, but that just brings you to carparts.com now. Does anyone have a part number or a link that still works to these? 1989 Ford Escort GT window channel seals?

After multiple hours of searching, an attempted use of the way back machine and an infinite amount of frustration at late 2000's forums (2009 was NOT that long ago, I refuse to believe that), I believe I located acceptable replacement window seals.

the rockauto link: FAIRCHILD 13694X2 Belt Weatherstrip / Window Scraper Seal | RockAuto

this is on the side of tentative, I'll be purchasing this within the next few weeks so I'll update this thread with whether or not these are the right parts. I have a good feeling about them, but you never know until you apply the potential solution in this case. Fingers crossed everyone

There was a Facebook posting about this back on August 5, 2022, by Pat Moody (I hope it's okay to put his name here). In the responses, someone posted a Steele Rubber window scraper that worked for them. It looks like the one from RockAuto, but the RockAuto (Fairchild) one looks like it's about half the cost of the Steele. The Steele product required trimming to fit, too, and they posted a link to a YouTube video of replacing them in their EXP. The information in the video included the part number from Steele Rubber.
Here's the link to the FB post where I commented:

I also tried doing a search in the FB site for the post, but was not able to come up with it that way. I'd saved the link to it, though, so I hope it works for others.

youll have to do what I did, I found after awhile a good weatherstrip supply place online then find what is as close as you can to what you need for me I got a 8 foot long bulk piece only length they had. then you will have to cut it down, remove old piece install new piece with small rivets, I did make some unique cuts at the front by the mirror to fit it nice and tight. here is the link to what worked for me
