  1. Kevin, Donation made. It should be enough for another year. Let me know if it came through okay.

  2. My ‘96 SHO turns 25 this year which means it’s old enough that the State of Texas should finally disregard the issues with the title. I might finally get it legal! And it’s considered a “classic” vehicle that allows me to run special license plates.

  4. I removed the Factory CD player from a junked 2002 Ford Taurus wagon, installing in a 2003 Ford Taurus wagon so I need the plug in wire harness from the RCU located behind the spare tire to the remote CD player.... ok got it! Thank You!

  5. Hi y’all, I replaced my 2014 Mercedes C250 with a 2016 Lincoln MKS EcoBoost last week. This was the result of being rear ended by an F250 towing a bass boat. The Lincoln MKS is a fat bloated waste of space. Terrible storage and poor ergonomics. Overall features are nice, but lack intuitive controls. Knowing all that, I needed a safe replacement to haul my kid around, anything that wasn’t Mercedes level of ownership costs, and something I can tinker with. Enter the MKSHO! 20 years separate my ‘96 SHO and ‘16 MKS, and yet they are the same damn car. JBL stereo - THX stereo. 4

  6. While ShelbyRacer may not like it, I opted to return back to traditional halogen headlights on my '97. I managed to put together a set of Ford OE headlight and turn signal lens assemblies. I added WeatherTech LampGaurds to them to try and hold off chips and yellowing for a while. I just need to get a replacement set of corner lens assemblies, as those are the only ones I haven't replaced with NOS OE stuff. The ones I have presently are from a '92-'94 LS Marquis, but I may go back to the proper '95-'97 style ones. I installed a relay harness for the low beams only, since I've re-insta

  8. I ordered an OEM spoiler for the fusion and it’s currently at the paint shop. I’ll be getting that installed soon. Also, just today I ordered the full chrome honeycomb grille for a titanium fusion and also the chrome trim for the lower front bumper that sits just below where the fog lamps go. I am still undecided on trying to install fog lamps on this car or not. I will make that decision before I remove the front bumper to put the new grille in as that will be the time to change the harness out for a fog lamp version. I may go ahead and put the harness in as the fog lamps can be added a

  9. Are you trying to get the screen to work to play video? If so, that wire is just looking for a ground. You can ground it to your chassis ground. Of course it will play video at any time if hooked up that way. The parking brake ground is used to limit the use of playing video while driving as it will only allow video when the parking brake is engaged. It is highly illegal to play video while driving. So, know that before you choose to tie that wire into the chassis ground. It will work that way though.

  11. Well, my ram drove off with its new owner yesterday. They told me it would go quick and it did. I hope he treats it well and it treats him well! I’ll miss it, but my pocketbook thanks me for saving some $$$ right now. My fusion now has 180 miles on it and has been great. I’ve had it a full 7 days now. It drives how I remember my 2014 driving. I really dig the auto dim headlights. I seem to use that the most around here. I bet most people think that auto dim headlights are a new feature, but it was actually pioneered and introduced by GM in around 1954. It was called Cadillacs’ “Autro

  12. Since the truck market is red hot right now and I really wanted to save some $$$ monthly, I took the opportunity and traded in my truck for a 2020 Fusion Ecoboost in Iconic Silver. I got the final number today on paper and it cost me 936.00 to drive my ram for one year and 8k miles. Pretty good, I thought. I never really used it as a truck so I decided I really didn’t need it as badly as I thought when I first purchased it. This fusion has co-pilot 360, big radio with nav, and other various stuff that makes it feel like a very well appointed car. Much more options than my 2014 Fusion had

  13. He came by and picked it up this afternoon. He was visiting the Pull-A-Part here snatching a K-Code (3.55 locking) axle from under a '88 Country Squire, so everything worked out very well. For the time being, it's currently back where it started in Blythewood.

  14. Been having some weird stability issues lately. Did some updates, hopefully this addresses any issues the forum has had. If you notice any issues, please let me know as always! Current known bugs: Theme might make pictures look weird, Try using 4.2 (Default) if you are having weird issues with the theme. I will try to get this all worked out as each server update seems to break things.

  15. Hello, everyone! Just joined. Bought my 2005 SE sedan on 7/31/20...Windveil Blue was always my favorite color too. Moonroof, Vulcan V6. Since I got it, added a lens to the overhead light fixture, got the other interior light hooked up, replaced the air valve sensor, installed new hood struts, new washer fluid cable to the hood. Coil pack went bad and fried the PCM (dealer fixed that at no charge to me). I also installed 4 brand new Firestone tires. I've had the AC fuse 10A blowing regularly under the hood. Clearly a short somewhere. Noticed the wiring harness across the engine t

  16. I added the ambient light group to my ram and also added the upper glovebox. I lucked out and found a brown upper glovebox kit on eBay for $100 which is a super good deal compared to the gray kit(my color). I bought the kit and when it arrived I disassembled the door and cleaned it extremely well with dawn and a scotchbrite pad and then applied adhesion promoter and the correct color dye for my interior. I also recolored the back panel in black and the glovebox insert in black as well(OEM color would’ve been grey). I also went custom with the insert and upholstered it which I thought gave

  17. Did a few small things on the '97 and '87. The '97 was having dimming lights at idle speed and incandescent bulbs had a noticeable pulse to them. I suspect the regulator was starting to get flaky since it would stop with higher RPMs, so I ditched the 3G for a 6G Motorcraft reman'd unit. Also installed a new belt and belt tensioner as the old one was starting to get weak. I did have to a little work at the intake where the alternator bracket mounts since the old bolt sheared as I was removing it (??? - I was rather surprised by that shit), so I drilled the sheared bolt, filled the h

  18. Pretty sure it was the 5-speed transmission from a first gen Taurus SHO that he used.

  19. The 3.0L may not be a powerhouse, but it'll outlast the sun properly maintained. The only weak spot you've got is the AXOD, but with some preventive maintenance, you can keep it going. I'd recommend regular ATF fluid changes about every 20K miles with Mercon V and adding a external transmission cooler. The transmission definitely runs a bit hotter than is useful naturally, which breaks down the fluid. If you do the above, you'll get plenty of miles out of it. There's a member around here, Double Negative I believe, that had TecNickal's old '87 Taurus wagon that got five speed sw

  22. Well, on Friday I picked up some old iron. 1968 Buick Electra 225 4 door hardtop. This is a one family owned car from new and was parked in 1992 when the parents passed away. It's going to need everything just from sitting around, but it's a beautiful car. 430 big block under the hood and a turbo 400 transmission. Odometer reads 19k miles and I'm inclined to believe that based on all of the OEM parts present under the hood and the factory markings still in place. I'll have more pictures soon after I do a little spring cleaning. I'm having tires mounted as we speak so that I can move it

  23. Nope. Couldn’t do it. Took out the H&R springs. 👎 Even with Drive Control set to Sport, the front end was to prone to bottom out. The car wasn’t “sporty”, although the lower ride height did improve cornering, it couldn’t handle small bumps.
