Parts cars are far and few in Europe and I do prefer original parts!

Thanks

Then I guess you have a choice, ether give up and only think of ways you can't or think outside the box and think of ways to accomplish your goal . Example call West Coast Cougar or other Mustang or Cougar used parts vendors and buy some used windlace . Best of luck with what ever you decide.

No worries. Another reader have already offered me some. Now I just need to find out how long it should be?

Thanks

Would be similar to what was used inside the cars in 70 not like the stuff used in the earlier years with the noticeable uniform pattern

Not sure if I have a close up of the later stuff. Maybe I'll check my Cougar

I was going to ask if this applies to Cougar as well.  Mine is MIA (Oct 1969, Dearborn build, California evaporative emissions).

Since the rear wheel tubs are shaped differently from Mustangs I don't think they are needed. The Cougars have an edge on the inners that is formed to bend over the outer and not create the same blunt/sharp edge as in a Mustangs.   At least that is what I'm seeing in pictures of 68 & 70 Cougars
