I received this Cougar about 15 years ago. As for the before pics, I don't have any. Imagine it was shot in a nice bubbly yellow with 10 coats of gloss black on top of that. There were air bubbles throughout the paint. I stripped the paint with Easy Off in the summer (July-ish). From this past Friday until tonight I think I made some progress. This was the first time i tried to wire an engine. I still have to foil, detail and do final assembly. Thanks for looking.

That's a lot of good work, nice job on the engine.

I suggest in the future not to flock the whole interior, texture contrasts almost always look more interesting to the eyes.

Nice body color and engine build, the interior is a little wild for the car...

I have to agree with Blunc here. You're paint-detailing skills are exceptional and very cleanly done, (love your firewall)! Use that same talent when painting your interior and i think the results will be much better than a coat of flocking! Nice save on this Cougar; its looking good!

Just to update, my 8 year old daughter asked if she could flock the interior. So I let her. She likes to build with me sometimes. I would have only flocked the carpet, but if this gets a new young builder into the hobby...so be it (with a fuscia interior).
