Hopefully Monday, or Tuesday, the guy made them, it's just a matter of picking them up... With my foot I can't make it to the middle of the mall... but my friend is coming back Tuesday morning and said he would run down there. But I am going to ask a family member to go down there sooner. I need to mail out some bills too, and, I don't have many people who can help me... It just had to be my driving foot....

I'm sorry to everyone who hasn't received stickers yet, most of you have, but as you guys know, I have broken my ankle. I have nobody to help me throughout the day, and can't make it down there as soon as I want to.

I am trying my hardest, and like I said, I am not making ANY money off of this, and I am even mailing them for free, and all of the stickers being given to donator's of the site are being paid for by me. I am doing this because I love this site, and it's members, but if anyone doesn't want to wait for the stickers, which is very understandable, just tell me and I will refund all of your money.

Like I said, the rest should be out by Monday or Tuesday, and I am very sorry I couldn't get them out sooner.

Hey Hey Hey, I'm reading this, well I am impatient for the emblems, but......I can hold out for a sticker, don't stress Chris, we know you gotta bit of a problem.
Hi Rick, hows it going? Hope you are well on the way to recovery, guess you and Chris should swop "I'm going mad - stuck in the house" syndrome.

Emblems

Dayle, your Cougar script emblems will be on their way to you today. I have to go to the Post Office to send them overseas and all.

I'm sending three Cougar scripts (one for each fender, one for the trunklid), one XR-7 emblem for the decklid next to the Cougar script, and one (sorry, that's all I had) XR-7 round shield for the quarter panel pillar (behind the rear side glass) I'm assuming you don't want to drill any holes in your new paint, so I included some doubleface bodyman's emblem foam tape for you to use.

Ooops, did I say I was sending all that stuff to you? I meant to say Santa Claus will be delivering it to you in time for Christmas. Yeah, that's the ticket. Santa.

Merry Christmas from one Cougar enthusiast to another.

Milo....aka....Santa, thanks, I appreciate it, hopefully my cougar will be fully 'clothed' in time for her Christmas picture. I am tired of people craning their necks to try and see what she is, its actually quite funny, we drive past, they speed up to about in line with the rear, then they slowly go past, then speed up and look backwards, and all the time you can see the searching look in their eyes. Having a "cougar' numberplate does not really help, if they have never heard of one, maybe they think we think we are real 'tigers'. I wore my Cougar t-shirt the other day when we were at the drags, so hopefully some folks were educated. I will be drilling holes for the badges......the reason why.........cos' snotty little brats like to collect badges, and nice rare ones will be a treasured prize, they use fishing gut, or a butter knife, to 'slice' them off. Unless they are bolted and superglued and attached to that part of the car that shoots out tons of volts they will not be safe, okay maybe not the volts part, but they are definitely not going to be easy to remove. I can just picture it now, little paws trying to steal them...........my friend had his camaro valve caps stolen at the drags the other day, and the car was constantly surrounded by people.

Ooops, forgot one

Dayle,

There is also a Mercury script that goes on the left front of the hood.

You want to drill holes? OK, now we've got a problem...

The emblems I had shipped to you today were 'de-pinned' since some were broken off anyway. I affixed the doublefaced emblem tape to the backsides of all of them (you'll have to do the trimming with a razor knife) except the XR-7 wreath that goes on the quarter panel pillar. That one is held with two pins and I included the ferrules or 'barrel nuts' -- the things that hold them in place. Even the pinned ones come off easily. They don't have threads on the pins with nuts on the backside, they just push in to the nylon barrel nuts. Actually, the taped ones are harder to remove than the pinned ones! I even included a little roll of extra tape if you need it.

I included instructions of the location of where each emblem is supposed to go. If you have trouble figuring out my instructions, e-mail me!

Well, anyways, I hope you can use them!

Okay, Stephen has just read this and he agrees with you [men] and thinks that sticking them on will be a better option, he is reluctant to drill holes, I am reluctant to have them stolen, but I do see your point, I was thinking of that funny LS grille emblem I have on the grille, its bolted on and they have put loctite or something on the bolts, if I ever wanted them off I would proberly have to cut them off. So will use the tape, thank you and also for the mercury script, she is going to look so good with all the correct badges, and a big thanks for the instructions, I was sitting here looking at photos and trying to figure it all out.
The tape they use here is proberly not as good as what you have there, I know they have a special one for rearview mirror, never worked on our sierra tho', the minute the glass got hot, the mirror fell off.............."yes officer, I do have the mirror.........hold on...........and I will get it out from under the seat."
As Stephen says we will never really park the car and just leave it somewhere, it will always be in sight so badges should be safe, and she gets parked in the [now cleared] garage at home.

We will definitely be able to use them, trust me on that one.

Emblem shipping

Dayle,

Of course, when I was shipping them I had to fill out a Customs form. On the form I had to state the contents and the value. I stated the value of the emblems at $10.00, and that they were a gift. I hope that is OK.

Also, let me know when you get them. I'm curious as to the transit time.

Milo, thats fine, we have a similar problem sending stuff out here, I will let you know as soon as they arrive. Hopefully sending mail out of the USA won't be as slow [re checking for 'funny' things etc] as sending mail in.
Thanks again.

Mercurycougar.net stickers! If you click the My Gallery button in my signature you can see a picture of them. I am selling them for $10 each (I am not making a penny, the guy who makes them is a little expensive).
