Things I noted, 1, Stone guard behind from bumper should be satin Black, 2, Missing XR 7 on Trunk 3, Hood grill not for a XR-7 4, Radio Bezel looks tacky 5, Looks like a Standard wood trim panel on the console. 6, Drivers side rear extension is way out of alignment. None of that would keep me from h...

Re: Steering wheel replacement

I have correct nut and missing spring on order. Will this spring, when installed, help keep the wheel from binding up? Or should I be looking at something else also? You will need to find something else. As I recall the spring goes between the steering wheel and the chrome horn part on the 67 wheel...

Re: Fender to hood Bumper Installation

I have used Windex to help get them in. Nice thing about Windex is it drys and the residue can be whipped away. But dish soap works well too.

Re: 71-73 Cougar vs Mustang

I think the door trims will interchange. But the Decor and XE-7 panels are far different then the base Cougar interior, but are similar to the base Mustangs.
