cougar 001 through cougar 017 are before I power washed what I could on the underbody and under the engine...the rest are after pics.

What you don't see because of it being jacked up and the driveshaft is in the way is the hole that spans the entire length of the muffler....
Should I add coolant just by looking at the one picture of the radiator?

You powerwashed the whole underbody belive it or not that old grease and oil dirt that was underneath the car was acting like a rust protectant. I think jcassity also powerwashed all his underbody and now its rusting you should think of putting some undercoating on that thing before it begins to rust. By the way your car looks just like mine.

you can tell a guy is strapped for cash when he dosen't own jack stands and a garage jack :)

Least the body is in alot better condition that the 86 GS I bought a few months back

This link does not work for me.

Thats weird it works fine for me.

Anyway theres a process around here called rustop where they spray the bottom of the car with oil, really works wonders keeping the chassis rust free especially in places like buffalo where they put salt on the road using dumprucks.
