Default Replacing Inner/Outer Door Belts (Door Window Seals)

This is the part that fits against the glass on the door. The rubber coating has come off of mine and they are rusting.

Anyone done these? Any tips? I'm getting ready to tear down the doors and replace these seals. I couldn't find any direct replacement parts out there, just universal weather stripping/belts.

Thanks!

I took Mine off when I painted my car. They wouldn't clip in well because a few of the clips were old and beat. I just bought oem replacements. 60ish each. They come with new clips so I hope it goes in easy.

Looks like $200 shipped for all the hardware...

I wish there was a cheaper option, but these things are getting ugly!

I'm going to try taking mine off, sanding them and plastidiping them, maybe I'll get around to it this weekend.

I'm going to have mine nickel plated here at work, just for the bling.

What are the part #s for these? I just spent 10 minutes scouring Mazda Motorsports to no avail. Mine are in the same shape -- chipped and rusting beneath and really needing replacement...

I've seen them called belt line trim before.

I replaced mine a bunch of years ago on my '94. It wasn't too hard, but I don't remember the details. I got the parts for Christmas, I think from Moss...
