Started the interior of my wife’s 68 cougar. I did the package tray and the seats from tmi. Also had to install a aftermarket tilt column since the new foam is thicker. Now I have plans to get the center console and from door panels from tmi to match. But I’m not really sure if the fit. Worst case I will just order them and find out. Second option is to order door panels from MP products and see if that works. Have anyone tried the tmi mustang door panels on our cars? Thanks

1967-68 Mustang door panels are not full door panels - they will not fit a Cougar.
The Mustang door panels are intended to fit into a recessed area in the door.

Ok I guess I’m just confused at this point. I saw the door panels from tmi and they list them as 67-68 and they look like full panels

So at this point I guess I would testing them out to see if they fit. I wonder if the window crank and door handles are in the same location. This might work.

I stand corrected. When I searched, I only found the 1969-70 Grande Mustang panels.
Note that these panels are designed to fit over the top of the Mustang door, which is shaped differently. So they may fit with some minor rework at the top. The instructions require double-backed tape for attachment, so some space filler may be necessary to provide a surface for the tape.
I believe the door handles and window regulators are located in the same location as the Mustang as they share these components. According to the instructions, these holes must be cut out by the installer.

I think depending on where I get them I can avoid paying for a restocking fee if they don’t fit. I’m gonna definitely give them a try.
