It's great to see that you are taking the time to repair this Cougar. Most people would have looked at it as too far gone with it's rust issues. So bravo on a job well done so far. :thumbup:

Jumped a timing chain on my way to a dentist appointment. Sense I have to replace that I though I might as well throw a bigger cam in there and put on a set of new Hooker long tube ceramic coated headers

That's usually the way things work out, "while I'm at it I might as well..." It's part of the classic car culture. :D
