Has anybody seen the chrome hood latch support on other cougars, I have seen (2) already but can't seem to find them anywhere. Any Ideas?

Thanks
PB

I've seen them but they were not originally chromed from the factory. If you want yours chromed, send it to your local chrome shop.

I don't know if anybody has them but I would guess not. A small piece like that should be less than $100.

There was a guy on ebay selling the chrome look powder coated ones a while ago. I bought one and it was fairly nice but the hood hinges I bought were stiff from the powder coating and when I went to shut the hood one day the drivers side buckled.

Ouch! thanks for the info, I may just take it off and paint it the color of the car.

I just blasted mine to bare metal and clearcoated it when I cleared the rest of the misc. parts when painting the car. This way you can't see paint getting chipped off from years of opening and closing.
