Re: 1967 Mercury Cougar

It was fast. A 1 day sell. It's actually been a bit of a stress reliever, as the expense of what was still needed was weighing on me a little bit. The next vehicle I get won't require the amount of work this one did, hopefully. Even NC Miatas have dipped into my price range. I'm not looking for anyt...

Re: 1967 Mercury Cougar

And just like that, whoosh...it's on to something else. I sold the Cougar a couple of weeks ago to a guy that had one as his first car. Apparently, he wanted it last year when I put an ad up, and was bummed when the ad went down. All in all, I ended up in the black about $1800. I resold the seats th...

Re: 1967 Mercury Cougar

Well, the seats are installed. Actually, I installed them twice. I initially installed them they way the previous owner had them installed to his brackets. Strangely, he had them installed backwards, which prevented the seats from being mounted on the brackets from being mounted at anything other th...

Re: 1967 Mercury Cougar

I picked up a set up Procar Classic seats from a seller on craigslist last night. They're black, so I'm thinking I'm going to color change the interior. Finding parchment replacement upholstery is expensive. Black is not. I'll most likely try out the vinyl/fabric spray paint on the spare interior pi...

Re: The new Taco

Changed the oil this week (exciting, I know) and had my son help me. It's my first time using the Fumoto valve since I installed it. Impressions? It works, I used the tube that came with it, but won't use it next time, as it negates the "clean" factor of using a valve if you have to deal w...

Re: The new Taco

Well, new tires, combined with just renewing the registration, means I'll be keeping this thing. By the time another registration rolls around, the truck will be paid for. I've never paid off a vehicle with a loan, so this will be something new for me. I've owned plenty of vehicles free and clear, b...

Yep, it's a rats nest under there and I haven't even attempted to look at it yet.

Re: 1967 Mercury Cougar

Finally got the hideaway door actuators installed, wire, working, and finishing. Only major gotcha I had is that the rubber dust boot that covers the motor adjustment knob was an obstruction and jammed one of the motors. Nothing big, although to adjust the door back down, I had to remove the headlig...

Re: 1967 Mercury Cougar

Slow going, I ordered a few bits for the Cougar today. New battery tray, hold down, front end emblem, some grommets, etc. i need to pick up some wire terminals to finish up the wiring for the headlight door harness. I’ve got the motors in, and getting closer to have it put back together. Maybe buy n...

I would've contacted Dunlop for warranty claims, but I didn't want the same tires back on there.

Re: The new Taco

Guess it’s time for new tires. Tires (and truck) are 3 years old, manufactured 4th week of 2015. They’re dry rotted, splitting quite badly. All 4 tires on the shoulder, and close to the wheel around the sidewalk. I don’t use tire dressing, keep them inflated properly, etc. Edit: had some 265/70/17 B...

Re: 1967 Mercury Cougar

Started working on replacing the vaccum headlight door actuators with the electric kit. Naturally, I broke one bolt on one actuator, and the other is rusted solid. They've been soaking for a bit with PB blaster now. Since I don't need to reuse that bolt, I'll most likely cut it out if I can't work t...

Re: 1967 Mercury Cougar

The new scoop looks so much better. I can't stop looking at the front of the car. When I get some time, maybe Sunday, I'll see if I can get the electric headlight door actuators installed.

Re: 1967 Mercury Cougar

It's done! Now to see if I can squeeze picking it up today, or if I have to wait until tomorrow.
