Re: Pinstripe size for 1968 Cougar

Royce is right to point out that most of the cars I took pictures of in the other thread were 67's, but one was a 68 with the same spacing as the 67's. But now a couple people have chimed in with 68's with closer spacing, so I can't say for sure all 68's were done the same. Royce - in your top pictu...

Re: Pinstripe size for 1968 Cougar

What I found on several original cars was 1/16" stripes with a 5/32" gap. That would be Finesse # F-42. Spacing from the body line is about 1/2", and the taped seams at the body gaps were 5/8". I took a bunch of pictures recently, check out pages 2 and 3 of this thread: https://classiccougarcommunit...

Re: Font?

LOL - Is it bad that the gumball machine pic made me laugh? They took the whole masculine theme to another level with this ad: qdCxsDAyH4k Funny that there's a [scary] woman driving it, and she asks if you're man enough to drive it. Huh? Luckily the next year (68) they changed it up, to a more reaso...

Re: Comfort weave seats

Both versions are available, but if you want to stay original you might as well get the comfortweave. Up to you though. The vinyl XR-7 seat covers look about the same as the original leather, at least in terms of the texture. The only thing that changes between the two ( vinyl and comfortweave ) is ...

Yeah, it's a slightly cringe-worthy slogan to see in 2018, but that's what it was!

Re: Font?

For '67 and '68 the official type face for "Cougar" was Goudy Heavyface Italic. - Phillip Ah! Wish I'd known that before I did the '67 blueprint poster . I found one that was pretty close. One of the fonts I use a lot, which mimics some of the emblems (67-8 dash panel emblems, 67 quarter emblems) a...

Re: Is this suppose to look like this?(repro regulator)

I'm confused. There shouldn't be a way for the window to go up or down crooked. All the guides / sliders should keep it level. I'm wondering if you're missing parts, or if one of your guides is loose, or if you have missing or worn out rollers. The window frame itself should have two plastic rollers...

Re: Matt Slay Memorial Arrangements

Very sad news. I can't add much to what's already been said so well by others. I had the chance to meet Matt and his family on a few occasions at shows, and he was one of the nicest, most welcoming people I've met. I remember wandering around at the 2015 East Coast nationals, not really knowing many...

Re: This is new to me..finally! Power steering teal..

I'm not a fan either. I get that in some cases it's "correct" and that's cool for the concours guys, but I just think it's ugly and clashes with the blue engine. Satin black for me!
