Re: Panels behind rear seat?

Yes, there was a piece of soundproofing there. It was the same type of material that you may have found on the floor under the carpet or in the trunk under the mat. I am not aware of a reproduction of it. It originally hung off those two over sized coat hook like hangers that you can see in your pho...

Re: Paint color

Yeah, the dash pad is more work than pulling back a fender or removing a starter. Some of the screws for the pad are hidden behind other parts plus you are removing small screws, not the larger bolts on a fender or starter. And then the screw heads are finished in black which blends in with the blac...

Re: Paint color

I stand corrected...drivers side: WB 17767 10 31D2; passengers side: WB 17766 10 31D3 It looks like you are showing the front mounting bracket for the bumper in your photo. They should be painted black, not yellow but must have been painted yellow when the last repaint was done. If the numbers are ...

This is good news and fills in another piece of the puzzle. Which side did you find this on? The VIN is usually stamped on both sides. It might be time to check the other side for another puzzle piece.

Re: 67 rear end

Most likely you will have 28 spline axles. The 31s were usually in cars with a posi and gear ratios like 3:91 or 4:30. That usually put them in cars with a Boss 302, 428CJ or 429CJ. To be sure of what your car has you will need to see if the rear end tag is still in place. You will need to get under...

It's right below the trunk latch like the drawing shows if it is a hatch back.
I have never seen a 1986 Cougar hatchback, only coupes. And those will have a decklid.

Re: Dash wiring question

Not every plug is used on every car. The wiring harness is generally set up to handle just about any possible option that may be added to any given car. If an option is not on a car then the plug will remain unused. There are a few options that have their own separate wiring harness as well, the wir...

Re: Clock lights are pulsating. ..

I am not the best with electrical but I will offer a few thoughts. When you put the dash pad back in place you pinched a power wire to the clock lights. The bulbs are not making a good contact in the socket. There is a loose wire going to a socket. I would say that you will need to pull the dash pad...

Re: Clock lights are pulsating. ..

It would help to know what year and model your car is. If I were to guess I would say a 1969 or 1970 XR-7 or Eliminator.

Re: 67/68 steering column question

You will be able to see the outer cover for the collapsible section no problem. If I recall correctly the wiring plug is different between a 67 and 68 turn signal switch.
