New to Cougar's, and new-ish to LA

#1

Post by lukejay » 27 Jul 2018, 13:21

I joined the forum today as i'm hoping to be the owner of a 1968 XR-7 shortly! I'm English and have recently moved to LA, and in particular have no idea about finding someone to paint the car for me, or do the interior upholstery. Can anyone help, it would be much appreciated? Also any recommendations for mechanics in the LA / SoCal area who know Cougars well would be great to. Thank you.

Lukejay, there are several Cougar Club chapters in California. Local club members would probably be the best ones to give recommendations on paint & upholstery shops.

Also, Welcome aboard! Please post up some pics of your car - we'd love to see it, no matter what its present condition may be :-)
