New rear seat to trunk steel divider for your Mercury Cougar. We had this one made specifically for the Mercury Cougar and it is designed to replace the flimsy tar based cardboard factory divider.
We have noticed that after 40 plus years of chassis flex, the welds on the cross braces behind the rear seat tend to be broken at the top or bottom. When installed properly behind the rear seat, this 18 gauge steel divider will provide stiffness to the chassis. This divider can be bonded, screwed or welded into your car and will provide insulation from sound and temperature that seeps in from the trunk.
The metal divider mounts behind the rear seat from the inside of the car, so it does not conflict with the factory braces.
Don talks about this divider in our video below on suspension and chassis upgrades.
