Re: Replace Parking Brake Release Handle

Replace Parking Brake Release Handle

I want to replace the parking brake release handle on my 1973 Cougar. Looks like the original is held on with a pin or maybe a set screw. Any guidance on removing the old and securing the new one?
Thanks,
Gary

One YouTuber suggested lithium grease, but white grease looks terrible on a black frame. There are plastic washer/rollers, which ...

Re: Do you Like this Hood Isulation pad?

I used the ABS hood insulation cover ($88) from QuietRide over a repop insulation pad in my 73 Cougar. The repop was shedding and also scratching the new paint on my air cleaner. Made a cardboard template first of the ABS cover to check if the size and holes matched. The cover is longer than the rep...
