Looking to straighten a rear valance on my 69 vert, that was crushed by what looks like a bad tow job with belts...PO didn't know how this happened. (see pic). Have removed old bumper and have a new one ready to go on, but wanted to fix this first. Any body guys in the Snohomish WA area? Thx
When 8 have a few minutes I will look at my stash. I have one for sure better then that. It does have some small dents that were filled with bondo. They should be easy to fix correctly. At least a lot easier then the one you have now.
SO…took the advice from you guys, and this is what happened over the holidays. You can see from the original pic, when I took the bumper off, I found the license plate frame light assembly (it just flopped out when I pulled the bumper) and was full of oil, road dirt, and rust, there was no fixing it…basically toast. The wiring (fortunately) was still intact…long story short, I replaced the old bumper by trading out for a new one at a Monroe swap meet. Replaced the license plate light assembly with a fully restored reproduction (West Coast Cougar had one left). Found a new NOS 69 cougar rear valance on eBay and had it painted.
Then put the whole thing back together…and voila…
Fuel door is next...thanks again guys.
Yes indeed. The Marti report says Bright Blue Metallic Ford #3077-A and she will be again..except a brighter modern version of blue of course. I finally decided on Chip Foose Huntington Blue Pearl…as for the bumper, yes lucky. The guy was good people. Hope I'll be so lucky on the front now. Both the valance and the bumper are crushed, so after I'm done restoring the fuel door that's next.
