Just took some final pics! and i can call it done now!!!!!!!!
picked up a new taillite panel yesterday while at NNL East and got it put on....
Also took her back apart and replaced with the orginal interior tub! looks much better!!!(the 69 cougar tub just wasnt cutting it and i didnt wanna change the chassis over to the 69.

Scratch built the exhaust tips trying to replicate some i seen on a car on ebay that was also a 70 cougar but i think they are to narrow compared to what i seen.............but i still like them..........

Thanks for lookin! next post will have the convertible in the pics with this as well......

Like I said I like both of them alot. Just noticed does the yellow one have taillights? What interior did you use on the yellow one? You said you was going back to the stock one.

I tried to use a newer issue interior tub from a 69 cougar kit, altho they looked the same they really werent,so i went back to the orginal one to the kit i was restoring.
it does have taillite installed now,had to wait for NNL east to pick up a new one.

thought i had posted an updated pix with it installed,but i couldnt find it so here it is again.
