    One of the most common problems with first-generation Cougars is droopy hidden headlight eyelids, which make the otherwise iconic front grille look like an eyesore. This inexpensive and easy to install kit provides stops for the eyelids to rest against in the closed position. It also provides some extra structural support to take some of the pressure off the built in bump stops.

    The vacuum actuators on these cars create extreme downward pressure at all times when running, causing the upper adjustable stops to warp your soft grille castings over time. The damage caused is most noticeable on the outer edges of your grille, where often the corners will tip inward so severely that they will rub when the eyelid opens and closes. If this is the case, you'll also want our grille straightening kit, which is a set of spacers, like braces for your teeth, which can correct those bent corners. (Coming soon).


    Check out our easy installation video below, which shows this kit in action:





    As an addendum, here's how you can straighten the outer corners of your grille, which are often crooked:

    Had to put these on the second I got them.....difference was night and day - never thought my grill would line up that good, and it only took about 5 minutes to install. Obviously couldn't give 5 stars for correctness, but no modifications to the car are required, so no problems there. Great idea - works wonders!!!

    Pros:
    • Look
    • Easy

    You can not beat these, sure they are not correct but I would rather have my grille remain straight after all the hard work straightening it out in the first place. One could source all these parts from the local hardware store but for 6 bucks its not worth the time or effort! Just buy the kit and spend 5 mins installing!

    Every cougar owner needs a set of these and now has no reason to have a misaligned grille!

    Pros:
    • simple fix to a common problem
    Cons:
    • none
