Does anyone know what color this narrow plastic trim strip was on a blue 66 'Stang? Also, was the back of the inside rearview mirror originally chrome plated or brushed aluminum? Mine is too rusty to tell.Thanks!
That strip is originally a chrome/mylar strip. No real way to reapply it. Most people just do new panels.Couple of things, the door handle is on backwards (should face towards the window crank) and the door appears to have been trimmed for the deluxe interior courtesy lights, however that's a standard interior door panel. Just a heads up in case you want to upgrade to the deluxe interior to match the light, as the lights technically weren't available separately on the Mustang as an option (meaning the hole shouldn't be there if it is a standard interior car)...HTH...Mark.

Thanks Mark, I kind of figured as much about the chrome/mylar strip, my Firebirds have a similar one - the heat just makes it peel right off.I took the courtesy lights out to repaint the door panel, but I did notice when I bought the car that it looked like deluxe and standard items were mixed. Thanks for the heads up!
