2004 Thunderbird Accessory Pack

Hi, as part of my self-education process prior to buying a 2004 Thunderbird, I have viewed a few Youtube videos. Some show an accessory pack that came with the car (see photos). Does anyone know what was in there, and if substitutes are needed or available? I'm wondering if the paint protector strips were in that pack, to avoid having the hardtop scratch the paint. Those I would want to get.

Thanks!

Just happen to have original complete "accessory pack" that contains the several sets of the protector strips and solution for mounting hardtop. Have not seen these available anywhere else. Also have original T-bird logo torx wrench for mounting. Generic wrenches go for about $40. If interested, you can have the kit and wrench for $150. IMG_0291.JPG IMG_0292.JPG IMG_0296.JPG
 
I bought my 2003 new and it came with about 6 Mylar strips cut to fit that you would put in place so the hardtop would not rub the paint. It also had a CD disc to show you how to put the top on. The warranty and owner's manual. It had the cloth top protector for storage and the Hardtop cradle to roll the top around plus the T bar wrench to tighten the two bolts that hold the front of the top down.

The Mylar protective strips have been discontinued from Ford. I bought a roll of Mylar tape and use that, The tape cost me $12 and it will allow for a lot of top chances.

If the car I'm interested in works out, I should own it in 3 weeks. Will get back to you then, as that car definitely is missing these items, and I would want to but the kit from you. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

Hi FANZ Can you tell me were you purchased the metal strip for the top - sounds like a long lasting improvement. I've looked and can't find who sells them
Thanks.
