    Reproduction lower rear window channel patch panel for the Mercury Cougar. It is fairly common for the rear window channel area to develop rust, especially with vinyl topped cars.


    *NOTE* If you are going t install this part on a Cougar with a vinyl top, you will have to drill holes for the vinyl top moulding / trim.

    Pros:
    • Excellent fit and overall panel quality
    Cons:
    • Weak trim clip posts
    Overall this is a very good patch panel that fits well and seems to have the correct contours and metal gauge. I'm glad this is available to fix the often-rusty rear window area on Cougars. The only issue I had with this is that the posts for the trim clips were weak. When I was installing the clips, most of the posts broke off, so I had to buy several of the repair studs (item 12127) to replace them. It all worked out in the end, but I shouldn't have had to do that.

    While not an easy item to fit it certainly makes it easier to repair this often rusted section. I did the job myself following this article http://www.hotrod.com/how-to/paint-body/1407-how-to-replace-a-rusty-trunk-filler-panel/ . Just finished and it looks great.
