Trunk lids - Thunderbird & Cougars

I am guessing the trunk lids are different between the Cougar and Thunderbird?  Is the Cougar similar to a Mustang lid?

Is the '87-88 Thunderbird lid different from the previous years?

A friend in the Foxbody club makes interior covers for the Mustangs and just picked up my extra trunk lid to setup on.  He's going to put the Thunderbird image I have on my wheels into it too.

I am going to start bugging him about hood insulation after this......

All of the trunks are different. T-Bird and Coougar trunks are different (Cougar is longer) and 87/88 is different from 83-86 (87/88 goes all the way to the rear window, and the 83-86 doesn't)

Keep us posted on this. I have wanted to do this as well for some time . The hood insulation with the emblem would be awesome.

Will do!
I see his advertisements for the Mustangs and wanted one for a while.  Moving my trunk in the shed yesterday made the bell go off in my head to lend him my extra trunk lid to get it made.

Hoping to have some updates on this later this week.  He took some final measurements on my car Saturday.
