Love the story, and the car! I’m in a very similar position with my car....though mine is in much worse condition...lol

Good luck, I’m looking forward to following your progress!

So it's been awhile since I've posted any update on the Cougar. It's been in the garage all winter, only out on the road a couple times(mostly due to dark,wet, cold weather) I new the passenger floor had issues, so I cut up the carpet.

Yeah,it's pretty bad..

I found a full passenger side pan on the auction site for $41 shipped. I'm going to install it here in the next few weeks(hopefully), with the help of a friend who's a good welder. I may have to replace the seat riser as well..

Be advised that the reproduction Mustang seat risers are a different height than the original Cougar ones.
