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

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.
