Re: Removing grill emblem

Don at West Coast Classic Cougar has an excellent video showing exactly how to do this (and many other wonderful things).

Re: Chrome...

Perhaps someone clearcoated the bumper to try to protect the chrome and the shiny spot (to the left of your photo) is where the clearcoat has come off.

Re: Instrument voltage regulator

The instrument voltage regulator only affects the gauges. It doesn't affect the dash lights which are on a separate 12v circuit. If your dash lights aren't working, it's probably your headlight switch or a fuse.

Re: June 2018 Ride of the Month Nominations are now open!

I'll nominate whoever has a big cat ('74-80something?). I've been seeing more and more of them at car shows- often nice, clean, low-mileage survivors pulled from grandma's garage. Surely, someone here must have one.

Re: Air coming in through steering wheel

I used one of my kid's foam pool noodles. It's bright pink.

Re: Originality vs arning drop?

TCP (Total Control Products) sells a dropped pivot mount to relocate the upper arm without drilling new holes in your shock towers. I'm not sure if it works with stock control arms, though.

Are you going to remove the springs?
They're not really in the way and if I remove them, I'll just have to find a place in the garage to store them. So, I think I'll just leave them be.

Re: CopyCatVert

Here's my latest cheapskate modification: gas struts for the trunk, salvaged from an old hot tub cover lift (including the nifty rectangular nut that looks like it was made to fit inside the Cougar hinge) . Price: $free. Time: finished before the grill was heated up for chicken. Result: my trunk now...

Re: AOD TRANSMISSION

Make sure you get the correct AOD flexplate or you'll toast the front pump on the transmission within seconds. Ask me how I know.
