HELP!!

So im buying a sliver, 2000 cougar as my first car and it needs some work done for it to pass safety. According to the seller it needs emergency brake cables. How many do i need? Can i do the work myself or with a friend that knows his stuff or should i just take it in to a shop? It also needs a rear light cover. This sounds simple but the car has the lights where its just the semi-circles that are seperate so it could be difficult to replace. If anyone has any pointers on how to go about this it would be greatly appriciated.

Re: HELP!!

Inside the trunk, there should be some thumb screws that hold the lens in place. Unfortunately, it comes as an assembly and your best bet for replacement is probably E-bay or a junk yard.

As for the E-brake:
