To answer your questions, yes, I have Mach 460 and it will fit. Yes, it looks like the coupe will have to be cut down by the consumer. You just lay the new over the old and scribe a line and cut the top off (per LoTek).
Ok .. here is the good, the bad, and the ugly .. (I am emailing everyone this info also).
I just got off the phone with Dennis at LoTek. The bad news is
, the pillars pods have to be "covers" not "replacements". This is because on the 2000+ cars the pillar plastic is know as a safety device
and Federal law prohibits replacement of a safety device. You mid-year 2000+ guys take a look, the underside of the pillar will have baffles. I know my 99 does not. Anyway, Dennis says all of theirs now have to be covers (except on some older cars). So what does this mean for you coupe drivers? Well, Autometer already sells a full length pillar cover for coupes (94-2000). The only difference in LoTeks will be a cheaper price and they will paint to match your interior. Needless to say, I am very disappointed. I have spent many hours setting this up. I understand if some want to pull out .. just let me know. But for you convertible owners, like me, this is the only answer ..
More bad .. These will take about 8 weeks to make. Dennis says the holdup is with the plastic "former". LoTek has to wait in line for them ..
The good news is
.. They will match whatever colors we want. We just need to supply the Ford interior color code. Let me know if you have this info. I will probably call the dealer and get these for charcoal, med. dk. parchment, and gray. Black is a done deal.
They are mocking up a triple gauge pillar pod using my pillar right now and I should have it early next week. I will take pics and post them.
Just Rash (ouch) ..
