Re: Front fender sealer

Cougars have that too. I used 3M "strip caulk" on mine.

Re: First cougar project

That color looks awesome! I'd be tempted to leave off the vinyl top if I were you, but I know it's kinda late for that. I went through that debate on mine, but originality won out, so I get it. Have fun with the reassembly! It's like a big Lego set.

Re: poor quality / ridiculous price / Anyone here know how to cut foam?

Wouldn't the ideal situation be to reproduce these in rubber as original? The foam seems to function okay, but would be nice to have a proper OE replacement.

Re: 67 & 8 wheels

Specialty Wheels was bought out by Wheels Vintiques after the owner of SW passed away, hence the decline in quality control. And yes the WV is the only manufacturer of the styled steel wheels. I hope they improve, as I'll probably want to go to the original style wheels at some point. For now I'm en...

Re: my wheels reconditioning project

Looks great! That’s one of those things when you start to wonder whether your time is really worthless or not 😅 I did a similar project restoring some Volvo alloy wheels. They came out great and I spent hardly any money, but a whole lot of time went into it.

Re: Different finish on a new Dynacorn part....

I've seen this finish on their parts before, I believe it's a weld-through primer. Mainly to protect the metal from corrosion and make it easy to weld in. I think you can paint right over it, but I'm sure others here have experience with it and can say for sure.

Re: Replace your 1970 Ignition Switch for under $20

Nice! Just in case people want to look at other stores besides AutoZone, what is the application for the new switch?

Re: Movin' On, But Not Gone

Thanks again guys, I really appreciate all the kind words here! It's pretty satisfying to know that I've made some kind of impact on the community and hobby. It still feels weird to be "on the outside" now, but the projects I'm finishing up for WCCC make me feel like I'm still a part of it. Brian: t...
