No, not tanked as in too much beer, although the beer tool was involved, I was able to spend a few hours today on the back end of the Cougar. I pulled the tail lights and bumper and started some general cleaning. The inside of the trunk is coming along, albeit slowly. I was skimming though Mercury Cougar Forums looking for alternate ways to clean and insulate the trunk.
After a few minutes of searching I was able to come up with a few ideas, including insulation from Jegs, using spray adhesive or insulation from one of the big box stores. I stopped by Lowe’s today and did not see anything I could use for insulation. Think I’ll spend the extra money and order from Jegs or Summit, if I go that route.
I found the trunk kit that will be laid after the trunk is complete. Of course this is a long way off since I am still pulling parts off the car in order to prep it for bodywork and paint. Not really quite sure of the details, the when and where. But surfing the net and talking to other car enthusiasts my ballpark figure for the bodywork and paint should come close.
Nonetheless it was nice to finish the house chores (aka honey do list) and spend a few minutes doing some minor work on the cat.
