1990 Cougar XR7 Stock except for paint changes I made as compared to the real version. I added an oil dipstick, wired the coil pack and added a hose that runs to the radiator cap on the real cars. The exhausts aint perfect and the hood dont sit flat because of the supercharger. This is my first Mercury build wish i woulda picked up the AMT 69 Cougar Eliminator for only 2 bucks more (this was only 10) as Im a pony car guy but this looked semi interesting. Tinted Headlights Incorrect coloring tail lights (on purpose).P3240096_zps8a3c9826.jpgP3240094_zpsc24ba63a.jpgP3240093_zpsc2262f96.jpgP3240092_zpsa12bf01a.jpgP3240091_zps517a5cf3.jpgP3240090_zps1ba9298d.jpgP3240089_zpscc0f904c.jpgP3240088_zps6aba4e53.jpg

Cougar looks pretty nice Jake.  Nice detail work on the engine.

 

You might want to check the toe-in on the tow rig.
