    Restored Taillight Bezels for the 1967 and 1968 Mercury Cougar

    Beautiful show quality triple-plated chrome taillight grilles / bezels for your '67-8 Cougar! Better than new. Sold as a pair. Bare chrome, so you will have to do the black detail paint yourself (see tips below). If you are sending cores keep in mind we cannot use heavily pitted parts. Light surface pitting (bubbles) only. We cannot restore bent or cracked parts.


    Painting Tips (click images to enlarge)

    We recommend SEM Trim Black aerosol paint for this application. It's a professional-grade product that adheres well to chrome and has a beautiful satin black finish.

    First, assuming you have freshly rechromed bezels, prep for paint by cleaning with wax & grease remover or similar. Then coat with SEM Trim Black, following the directions on the can.


    Allow the paint to dry thoroughly (overnight) before handling. Next, mask off the edges of the bars where you want the chrome / black paint to end. From the factory, the black paint extended onto the bars just a little bit.

    Now begins the fun part. Using a rag lightly dipped in paint thinner / reducer, use one finger to wipe away the paint on each bar. This will give you a smooth edge. Be careful to only use a little thinner at a time to avoid runs. This will take a while, but the results are worth it. Put on some music and lose yourself in this task.


    Next you'll have to reveal the chrome around the license plate light area. Use masking tape or just a steady hand and wipe the paint off the raised area with your rag & thinner. It should look like this when you're done:

    While you're at it, you might want to restore your light housings as well. Use the same Trim Black paint around the outside to match the bezels, and use either gloss white or silver on the lamp reflector areas. Originally they were silver, but some say white reflects the light a little better.


    Once it's all back together, you'll know it was time well spent.
