How To Replace 1967 Cougar Steeing Wheel Emblem & Trim

The 1967 Mercury Cougar has a unique steering wheel with a black "Cougar" emblem in the center. Originals are often damaged from the elements over the years, but luckily we now have nice reproduction emblems to replace them. Same with the plastic chrome trim ring - they are often faded, but a nice reproduction is available. In this video, Don shows how to remove the old emblem and trim ring and install new ones on your original 1967 steering wheel center / horn pad.

Turn Signal Cancelling Cam Replacement
If your turn signals don't turn off after you go around a corner and straighten the steering wheel, this cancelling cam is your culprit. Instead of replacing the whole turn signal switch, you can save yourself some money by just replacing the cam. This video hows how to replace the turn signal cancelling cam on a 1969 Mercury Cougar with a tilt / tilt-away steering column. However, this information applies to a wide range of vehicles from the late 1960's through the mid-1980's, including Ford, Lincoln, Mercury, Chrysler, Dodge and Plymouth. The switch we used in this video, plus other related parts we mentioned, can be found here: http://www2.cougarpartscatalog.com/tusisw.html





LED vs Incandescent Taillight Bulb Comparison
These red LED tower bulbs are a direct replacement for the standard 1157 light bulbs found in your Cougar's taillights. They offer a lot of benefits, including a much faster response time, less current draw, longer life, etc. But are they actually brighter than regular incandescent 1157's? Watch to find out!

We also show restoration techniques for steering wheels using 3M 08115 panel bonding adhesive.

The Story Of Cougar 1: The First Mercury Cougar
A while back, we sat down with Jim Pinkerton, the owner of the very first production Mercury Cougar (1967 model year), a.k.a. Cougar 1. We hit the "record" button on our cameras and he let loose with an epic tale of how the car was first sold in Canada, its subsequent life there, and how it eventually got into his hands - an intriguing story! He also goes over some of the unique features of the car, and some of the restoration techniques used. It's a truly beautiful factory show car with more attention to detail than the 'average' Cougar. Special thanks to Jim Pinkerton for his time, and for providing most of the images you see in this video from his own collection of Cougar memorabilia.

Vinyl Woodgrain Installation - 1968 Cougar XR7 Steering Wheel Center
WCCC is now producing vinyl woodgrain overlay kits for classic Mercury Cougars! We've sourced a high quality material that closely matches the texture, color and pattern of the original burled walnut woodgrain, found primarily on 1969-1970 Cougar XR7's. Today we show you how to install our overlay onto a 1968 XR7 steering wheel center piece. This also applies to other Ford / Mercury / Lincoln vehicles for 1968. Although the woodgrain we're using is different from the original pattern used in 67-68, we think it looks pretty good. We will also be producing kits for the entire dash face, door pull strap end pieces, overhead console light bars, floor console inserts, and anything else on a classic Cougar that had woodgrain on it. More how-to videos coming soon!

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. Please visit http://www.cougarpartscatalog.com for more info!





Installing Opera Lights on any 67-68 Cougar
If you own a standard 1967 or 1968 Mercury Cougar, you may have noticed (with some envy) that the upscale XR-7's of those years have extra interior lighting on the C-pillars. These are referred to as rear courtesy lights, or opera lights. We have just reproduced the chrome / clear lenses for these, which add an extra touch of class and functionality to your interior. They are especially useful because Cougars didn't come with an interior dome light, so nighttime visibility is somewhat limited on the interior of a standard Cougar. The good news is - even if your car never came with these lights from the factory, your car already has the wiring for them. All you have to do is cut the tape holding the single wire to the harness and feed it through the appropriate hole (see video). So all you will need is a pair of used housings and a pair of our new lenses. Links to parts below. Used housings: New lenses: http://www.cougarpartscatalog.com/l4e9.html OR we also have used original lenses, which are cheaper but not as nice..

Front Suspension & Chassis Upgrades - '68 Cougar / Mustang
In this video, we show some of the ways you can easily stiffen your car's chassis and upgrade your front suspension. Using Andrew's '68 Cougar as a guinea pig, we bolt on, and weld on, some simple parts that will make a big difference in reducing the torsional flex that these front ends are prone to, as well as improving the integrity of the shock towers.

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.





Super Bright "Plasma" LED 1157 Taillight Bulbs - Comparison Video
You can get a full set of six "Plasma" bulbs here: http://www2.cougarpartscatalog.com/plasma6.html Or a 2-pack here: http://www2.cougarpartscatalog.com/plasma2.html We just got these new "Plasma" LED light bulbs, and wow, we are impressed. They are the brightest 1157 replacement bulbs we've seen by far, and installation is as simple as it would be with regular bulbs. In this video, we line up three 1967-68 Mercury Cougars to compare the new "Plasma" LED bulbs to the older tower-style LED's, and of course the original-equipment 1157 incandescent bulbs. The results are pretty obvious.
