Looks like the strips you have go on the interior panel as the seal to the inside of the window. The full size weatherstrip is available that matches the original.
Here is a link to Ohio Mustang's kit for the Grandé.

Did it have the small exterior seal?

I have not seen a repo matching the original. All I found were the small exterior seal. Yes they work great but they are no where close to the originals as far as looks goes.

thanks guys well as long as they work im happy with that, just makes you wonder why ford made them so big in the first place?, did anyone find that they rattle more after fitting the new rubber? might be a problem when window is down on rough roads?

I bought mine from Ohio mustang and they matched the original pretty much exactly, right down to the staples. However the cowl the hood weatherstrip is too skinny and much smaller than the original. In fact I have contacted all of the mustang stores and to date I have not found a cowl to hood weatherstrip thats like the original.
