It isn't a bird, but the doors and that part of the quarter panels are the same. I'm happy with the way it looks without the side moldings.

I took mine off before the car was painted, but you can use the same method without doing any damage to the paint. Just use a length of fishing line to cut the adhesive that attaches them to the body. Moving the fishing line up and down in a sawing motion works well. Then just use some Goo Gone to get rid of any residue.

"fenders", That's what I thought you were trying to describe... kinda makes our cars sound like a boat or a barge.

Being an 11 yr old FL car you might have some subtle difference in the paint color due to 11 yrs of sun fade?

You might end up with ghost moldings...

OT, racecougar - Is that a tbird interior you swapped in? It looks like a black dash/wheel, just curious.

btw that car is awesome. As much as I like the newer front clip my 89' grew on me over the years. With the new style interior and all the other work you've done that body style came out really sharp and clean looking.

I've been sick of the racing striped look since the eighties. It's so over and poorly done but you nailed it on that Cougar, looks nice. I've thought so since I first saw it ages ago. Everything came together real nice and flows.

The majority of the interior is from a 97 Tbird. The steering wheel is actually one of the few stock pieces on the car (90 XR7).

Ditto, but it just worked perfectly with this car and these colors, so I went with it.
