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).

Plastic Chrome Restoration for Classic Cougars
Using Cougar dash bezels as an example, Don discusses different methods of "re-plating" the simulated chrome on plastic parts. With costly and fragile vacuum plating and electroplating being the only viable options in the past, we are proud to introduce a revolutionary new paint process that is much more durable, costs less than older methods, and looks fantastic. We are offering restoration services for these dash pieces, as discussed in this video, and soon hope to offer the same service for other plastic "chrome" parts, such as door panel trim and more.

Is It Numbers Matching? - Cougar by the Numbers
In this video we delve into the complex topic of decoding tags, date codes, and other numbers to check if your classic Ford / Mercury is "numbers matching," using Don's newly acquired '69 Mercury Cougar XR7 428 Cobra Jet convertible as an example. While we haven't covered the subject 100% in this video (to keep it concise) we think this covers most of the major components and gives you the knowledge you need to figure out what your numbers mean.
