Convertible Top Installation: 1969 - 1970 Cougar / Mustang

In this episode, we tackle the daunting task of installing a convertible top on a 1969 Mercury Cougar.

Mustang Convertible Top Hydraulic Repair 1965-1973
http://www.cjponyparts.com/convertible-top-hydraulic-cylinder-lh-or-rh-1971 /p/CTHC2/ There's nothing worse than a faulty power top on your Mustang convertible and getting caught in the rain. The hydraulic system consists of the switch, motor, lines, and the convertible top cylinders. For repair on our 1971 Mustang, Bill installs a new hydraulic cylinder and a Scott Drake convertible top hose kit. To install the new cylinders, you'll begin by removing the back seat cushions and quarter trim panels. Follow Bill's instructions to disconnect the old cylinder and remove it from your Mustang. Disconnect the lines next and remove them, and then install the new Scott Drake hose kit. Installing the cylinder to the lines is simple, screwing on the longer hose to the bottom of the cylinder and the shorter hose to the top. You'll then need to fill and bleed the system, as demonstrated in the video. Once the system is filled and bled, make sure everything is dry and bolt the motor back and install the new cylinders. Put the trim panels back and the seat and you're finished. Total installation takes up to three hours.

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.

Mercury Cougar - American Muscle Car
An excellent TV show featuring the classic Mercury Cougar. They cover all the classic years, and talk about all the different engines and option packages you could get. Only a couple minor mistakes (they say the that XR-7 package included a 4-speed stick, then show an automatic shifter in one... derrr) but overall a very nice overview of these cars.
