    Description

    Our reproduction 428 CJ hood stripe kit with the black Cougar Head is made from quality 3M stock and patterned from an original Ford kit. Check out our video below showing how to install this hood stripe.

    NOTE: The hood stripe with the Cougar head was originally specific to 69 Cougars
    equipped with the 428CJ, and was also available on 69 Cougars equipped with
    the 351 w/ Competition Handling Package.

    There's a fun fact filled thread on hood stripes on the Cougar forum, which you can find here.

    Below is an older write-up with pictures showing the same process on another car.

    Here we have Mike Honan from "Mike Honan Signs And Graphics" showing us how to install a hood stripe on a 1969 Cougar. Mike has been designing and installing automotive stripe kits for years and is considered "The Go To Guy" here in the Willamette Valley. If you are in the area and would like him to come to you to install a stripe kit (or do paint on pin striping) you can email him at Honan78@comcast.net or check him out his website at http://www.honansigns.com/ . Mike also can design custom stripes for you no matter where you reside, just drop him a line. His prices are very reasonable and the quality and pride in workmanship is A-1.

    First off you need to center the stripe, most likely you will have to trim the backing paper so it is equal on both sides of the stripe.

    The next step is to cut half of the backing paper off and start laying down the decal.

    Carefully work the bubbles out from the center out. Do not expect to get all of the bubbles out right away.

    Now we are ready to do the second half, peel most of the paper back and start laying it down inch by inch. Patience... You are not in a hurry here.

    The front of this hood has a compound curve, to help the decal lay better try cutting a relief cut in the open section of the stripe.

    A few squirts of solution will be helpful here, Mike uses a Product called "Right On" but there are many products that do the job.

    Peel back the protective layer of paper to see your results thus far.

    Here is where it gets dicey... Notice the "puckers"? Do not get too excited yet, they are almost unavoidable on a compound curve like this. Because this is being done in the direct sun, the decal will be pliable and will lift back up without too much effort for another go at it in certain areas.

    Just relax... It will work out! Even if you do stretch the pin stripe portion of the decal by pulling back up a few times, this 3M material has a good memory and will contract back to its original size quickly.

    If there are bubbles present under the decal that cannot be removed by working them to the edge of the decal just leave them alone for a couple of weeks. The expansion and contraction of both the hood and the decal will take care of most tiny bubbles. If after two weeks you still have a bubble or two then a small needle can be used to puncture the decal at the bubble, to remove the air. A small pin hole will not be seen after the air bubble has been worked out with your fingers.

    I was bored, so here's a little trivia:


    A very unusual rear view mirror?






    Notice a wheel and tire change happened during the chase seen to these very skinny tires and and plain black wheels:






    Look at what the tripodometer says when they happen to run out of gas and sleep in the barn! Coincedence?...I think NOT!





    Lastly,I used to work with a Swiss chef for a couple years before finding out he was actually in this movie. He was a very colorful guy who worked all around the world. I often envied him for all the adventures and stories he had. Prior to leaving Switzerland, he was in charge of catering the cast and crew for the movie and landed a role as an "extra". He appears in about three scenes in the movie, most notably, jumping off the road into a snow bank to avoid the oncoming car chase. He would often proclaim his assessment of James Latzenby in his very distinct Swiss accent as being "the worst James Bond EVER!...even I could keek his ass!!!

    Here he is:

    A bit tricky to install without bubbles, but the YouTube video was very helpful. Found that by stretching it I was better able to make it over that complex curve without bubbles. Took some fiddling around, but I ended up getting it on correctly and without bubbles or wrinkles. Looks fantastic. I know white is not factory correct (they would have been silver or black from the factory), but with white pin strips, white convertible top and white interior, this looks best on my red cat.
