252: Sunday 3rd June 2013

Yesterday I went to Liverpool with my friend and neighbour so he could get a 4x4 Ford Cougar he was buying. 242 miles and 4 hours later we arrived, paid the guy and then drove back. Before I went I put a coat of red on the front bumper ready to go on. I added a piece of red tube that I had from some old air horns to fill the hood gap at the front. It doesn't close up the gap, but it does stop the line of sight through to inside, so you cannot see all screws etc.
With a bit of persuasion and a round file I got the front bumper on and lined up with the hood and lights.  I then painted the hood and left side (I had already painted all of the right side). Then I fitted the front side light and indicator units.
I fitted the wheel arch liners and front wheels, then took it off the stands and finally tightened the wheel nuts. The fit and alignment looked good.
The photo below shows the side indicator repeater that I inherited from my friends old Cougar. I took the rubber from the old Probe repeater and with a small cut it fitted the new repeater. Nice touch!
