Fast Eddie Shartman reunited with his Cougar

Pulled this from Kevin Beal facebook page. He got in touch with Fast Eddie and arranged a meeting with him. The first time he has seen his funny car since 1969. Sure would have liked to have been there and hear some of the stories.

Re: Nice customer service from Summit Racing!

I buy parts from Summit for work and personal. If I have my order in by 3:00 pm I'll receive it before noon the next day. The only delay is around the holidays sometimes it will get delayed at the UPS hub. I had that bit me a couple of times when I expected parts to arrive on Friday and a delay at U...

Re: Installing Classic Auto Air A\C in a non A\C 1969 Convertible

Just install the whole lower dash out of an AC car. If you need heater box and other stuff. I think I have everything from the factory to do the conversion. Including the lower dash.

Re: Calypso Coral / Comp Orange Paint

I used plastic coat Chevy engine orange paint. If I had to judge it. I would say it’s a shade lighter than competition orange but close.

Re: 1970 Cougar For Sale!

I think your 'firm price" expectation is to high in today's market for what your offering. Rust free body is worth about $4,000 and the restored parts about $3,000 so lets be generous and say you should be price around $8,000 - $9,000 Looks like it could have been a hounds-tooth model which is more ...

Re: Calypso Coral / Comp Orange Paint

I bought some back when I first got the Eliminator to touch up the window channel before installing a new windshield & trim. it's not visible so I don't remember how good it matched. I'll look this afternoon to see if I still have the can and if it matches good. Otherwise, like Mike suggested. I hav...

Get a service manual. You can buy the reproduction manual pretty cheap from most vendors. It will have the wiring diagram for the ignition switch in the manual. Then start tracing wires and see if everything is wired correctly first. The manual will also help you out with the rest of the Cougar as y...

Re: Blending clear coat ?

If you can tape to a sharp body line then blend clear to that line. you can leave the sharp edge and wet sand it out on the body line so it isn't that noticeable. When you're blending out to a flat panel the clear you're spraying becomes to thin and will have a hazy look to it. Sometime you can wet ...
