Rusty Roof Replacement - 1968 Cougar

If you have an old car that came with a vinyl top, chances are that you have some rust issues in the roof. This was the case with Andrew's car - a 1968 Mercury Cougar that his grandparents bought brand new in '68. In this video, Andrew takes matters into his own hands to replace his rusted roof skin with a solid donor roof from another car. He is by no means a restoration expert, just an amateur trying to save some money and save his car. Need a roof or other body panels for your classic Cougar? West Coast Classic Cougar has it all.

Vinyl Top Installation - '68 Cougar
In this video, we watch as a professional installs a vinyl top on a 1968 Mercury Cougar. After observing the process, we think this is a job that the average do-it-yourself-er can handle. It does require a certain amount of finesse, but not as much as a headliner installation requires (see our other video on that subject).

How To Fix Big Rust Holes on Car Without Welding Under $20
I totally understand that the best way to repair rusted rocker panels or fenders is using welding and patching the hole area with the new sheet metal. But if you can not afford to spend several hundred dollars for that job this is the cheapest approach on how to fix rust holes on your car, truck or van, even if it's temporary(rust will eventually come back). !!! USEFUL TIP: Let the vehicle sit for 1-2 days after you cut the foam. This will prevent cracks in body filler due to foam shrinkage !!!
