    Are you referring to the trim piece that attaches to the exposed metal on the underside of the hatch?

    Or are you referring to the interior trim pieces that line the back of the hatch just at the tail light panel?

    Essentially any trim from 79-93 will fit. The hatch metal didn't really change. You will most likely need to drill holes for the mounting hardware if your hatch never had the trim piece, but that should be it.

    The early models with the rear window wiper motor had the trim piece with the large bump in it that was later used on the SVO Mustangs.

    The later model 87-93 trim piece is flat and I have installed that on several of my 4 Eyed Foxes. Works just fine and usually only need to drill a couple of holes to mount it. Good Luck!

    I struggled to find one. I have an '85 and the only car I've seen it on are the SVO's.

    Any pics of the non-svo ones? Was this an option package?

    This is all true but I would add that when drilling said holes, one must be EXTREMELY careful to limit the depth the drill bit can go because once you cut through the bottom metal it is very easy for the drill bit to hit the outside sheet metal and put a very noticeable ding on the hatch lid. And further, you must be certain to use the proper depth screws when attaching the plastic so as not to screw into the hatch sheet metal and do the same.

    There's actually quite a few of these on eBay for sale. 87-93 hatch trim. They're all around 80-120 bucks shipped, which is a little more than I want to pay for something I don't need.

    The trim panels used on the SVO's were the same as the trim panel Ford used on the rear wiper equipped models early in the 4 Eyed years.

    I am not 100% sure, but I don't believe the trim panel was used for the later 4 eyed models except for the SVO's. It's possible it was part of a trim package, but non of my 85/86 GT's ever had it. My 82 GT didn't have one and I don't remember seeing them on many other Foxes, but again I never owned them new, so you never know.
