68 Mercury Cougar Shock Tower Brace Modification To Fit
10th part of the Mercury Cougar restoration. Here the finished suspension is looked at and the after market shock tower brace is modified to fit the car. The painted engine bay and installed engine can also be seen. As always, thanks for watching and comments are welcome. There was some feedback on this video about the shock towers sagging inwards on these cars. The original braces fit ok and dropped into place. These are old cars and anything can happen, but original fits are something to be considered.

The V8 Interceptor [S4 Ep.11-1]
One of the most popular cars of the Muscle car era... the Mercury Cougar... has been one of the most overlooked cars in recent decades. Today on GEARZ all of that changes as Stacey rolls in a solid '67 Cougar... dubs it the "V8 Interceptor"... and begins to completely change the front suspension to get rid of the stock shock towers and turn this little old lady's car into a corner-carving, road-gripping beast. But wait!... you can't cut out the shock towers can you!?! Yes you can!... and Stacey goes in-depth on not only how to do it, but also the installation of a complete TCI independent front suspension. If you own or want to own a classic Mustang, Cougar, Fairlane, or other 60's Ford, and have always wished you could get rid of those stock shock towers to get more room in the engine compartment, this is the show for you.

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.

64 1/2 MUSTANG FRAME AND FRONT END REPAIR
This is a 1964 1/2 Mustang that should have been crushed, but due to the year and rarity I chose to save it. Some of the clips are not in order, but you will still get the idea of the extent of the repair. The repairs include replacing the front and rear frame rails, replace trunk, partial floor repair, partial repair to both quarter panels and inner fenders. The front end had to be completely replaced, including frame rails, shock towers, inner fenders, front crossbrace and cowl repair.
