Sorry to revive a dead thread, but I thought it would be better than starting a new one.
I hate the front end on my '96 Cougar... I think it's gaudy and ostentacious.
I want to remove the chrome "moustache" on the hood, but as discussed above, it will leave three holes in the sheet metal.
Can these really be filled? Wouldn't the filler crack and seperate after a certain amount of time?
Also, I would love to convert to the Thunderbird front end. I understand that the hood is the same, as are the headlights.
Can I just slap on the Thunderbird bumper cover?
What about an older Cougar? Could I put a '91 or '92 front end on my '96? Would the fenders match up with the hood, corner lenses, and bumper cover?
Thanks for any help.
