Hi I am new here just found this site. I own a 1978 mercury zephyr 2 door and i am having trouble finding replacement parts for it. Mainly what I am looking for is the window run channel and the inside and outside scrapper rubber for windows. Needed for both doors. Any help would be very helpful thank you.

Welcome to the site! Can't wait to see pictures of you car.
What I used can be found here
You will need to transfer fastners off the old pieces onto the new ones.
First mark the old locations on the new pieces, then pry off the old fastners, then drill holes in the rubbers and the fastners, then attach the fastners to the new rubbers. I used rivets.
On the outside I just used small rivets instead of staples.

The window channel has been discontinued. People have been using various different kinds from several different manufactures with mixed results.
