Hi all, I just picked up a new to me 88 Turbo Coupe 5 speed with 148k miles. The paint is in pretty rough shape but the body is good. Interior needs to be redone but it is all there. Drivetrain is all good so I am going to start on the body and interior. I need new headlight and taillight assemblies as well as new rubber seals. Any help on where to find these woulb be much appreciated. I also want to change the carpet so a source for that would be good as well. I have owned an 85 5.0 Tbird and an 87 TC Bird and I regretted selling both so this one is here to stay. Thanks for any and all help.

RSJ,
That looks to be in very good shape, I don't see body damage or rust, which is a big advantage. That will clean up real nice, and this forum will help out a lot as you move through it. I also had an 87 TC back in the late 90's, sold it and regretted that decision, been looking for a replacement and finally found a clean 88TC to keep. I also see a nice Capri Foxbody in your collection, cool cars.

Hi,  I hope you enjoy your bird.  I love mine. 

I have tail lights and front light assy for both sides.  Right tail light is fine, left has one crack but no spydering.  Front lights should clean up fine, but the small lights closer to the center have spydering in the lenses.

I also have a set of door seals. Can send pick. (they are the upper ones).

Let me know if you want pics.
