Episode 110 Mustang and Cougar Heater box assembly and detail tips Autorestomod
This week we show that bead blasting can be an effective way to remove old paint from the heater case on your classic or muscle car. We also use commonly available paints to detail out our case. We also show how to refinish the case and give tips on installation of the seals. We also show you that things can go terribly wrong—if the case has the wrong parts in it. Though we are using a 1965-70 Mustang case, all of the tips can apply to any classic car heater box. Thanks for watching! Sponsor: http://www.nationalpartsdepot.com
Sloppy Steering Syndrome - Problems & Solutions
If your steering feels loose and vague on your classic Cougar (or Mustang, or other old Ford / Lincoln / Mercury), you need to watch this video. During our annual open house event, we invited several Cougar owners to put their car on the lift and let us wiggle things around to diagnose loose steering. Some unrestored cars needed attention in several areas, whereas others were suffering from one or two factors that were overlooked during restoration. Armed with the knowledge you'll gain from this video, there's no reason your steering can't be made tighter and more precise. All the applicable parts mentioned in this video can be found on our website in these two categories: Steering parts: http://www2.cougarpartscatalog.com/steering.html Suspension parts: http://www2.cougarpartscatalog.com/suspension.html

Radiator and Fan Upgrade - Small Block Cougar / Mustang 1967-70
One of the most common issues on these old cars is overheating. The cooling systems were only designed to cope with so much, and over the years many small block engines have been bored out, hopped up, had A/C added, etc. Since Ford provided a very capable 24-inch radiator on big-block and A/C equipped cars, why not take advantage of the best factory cooling equipment available, without messing up the original look under the hood? We have all the parts you need to achieve this conversion, including our premium reproduction steel clutch fans. This video applies not only to Cougars and Mustangs, but to a wide range of classic Ford / Mercury cars and trucks.
