    New 89 cougar xr7 owner

    Hi guys! I just bought this cougar from "storm_dragon" on here a little over a month ago (http://www.sccoa.com/forums/showthread.php?t=82367) Its a 1989 cougar XR7 with a 5 speed. I just bought some plugs and wires for it yesterday so hopefully i will get it running right. From there the plans are to save up to fix the body. I would like to put a mach 1 hood from scp on it, 91 cougar grill & headlights along with some sc gfx. Right now it needs rocker panels, possibly floorboard patches(will have to look more in the light), abs/master cylinder assembly(brakes are very hard, and fluid is leaking onto the carpet), clutch, and balljoints. Here are some pictures i have taken of the car:

    Unfortunately I am full of knowledge of rust and rust spots.

    Every time I poked and prodded I discovered more rust but if you start you might as well keep going.

    It is not an easy fix just be patient make sure your welding buddy owes you a favour or two and you will get through it. I'm hoping to finish up in the next few weeks.

    Here's some pics of my disaster WARNING: Not for the faint of heart!
