  1. Thanks guys for the replys. When I first tried to reupholster the headliner I messed it up. Like Zen said it headliner material over foam over fiberglass mat. I did it Kevs way months ago thinking I could scrape off the fiam and it would be fiberboard or something. Once you remove the foam you remove the strenght from the mat and its like a sheet of constrution paper. I was tempted back then to use resin and hardener but I thougth how could I get it in the car. I going to go to the jk and pull doen a scape headliner and peal off the carpet material. If the foam stays on ill do it like that if foam comes off in chunks i will do it zens way.
  2. I have a gen 3 Taurus and I want to reupholster the headliner and my double sun visors. Does anyone know the best way to reupholster the headliner. Should I pull off the old headliner material or should I glue the new headliner material to the old. What is the best easiest way to take the visors apart to install to install the headliner material.
  3. I want to add lighted cruise control and radio funtions to my steering wheel. Can I find a car simular to mine and remove the clocksping and put it on my steering column to have the funtions work. If the clockspring fit can I depin and repin the connection to the airbag horn radio and cruise funtions to work in the car. If that will not work does anyone know of a Ford that has the same leather wrapped steering wheel as gen 3 sho but with lighted cruise controls and radio functions. Will a 00 - 07 taurus or a gen 5 taurus column and steering wheel fit the gen 3. Will the parts be interchangeable and or have the functions I want.
  4. Thanks thats what I was looking for. Bullgeek your like the parts locator guru.
  5. No my door panels don't have the lights in them. I know that a lot of things got deleted in 97 on the Taurus and Sable. What I was trying to find out was does Ford Lincoln or Mercury have any other door panels that have the clear center lighted reflector would be the same size and shape. I was in a Lincoln Mark vii or Mercury Cougar and it that a lighted reflector, the reflector looked like it could fit in a gen 4 Taurus.
  6. Does anyone know what cars besides the 96 Taurus/ Sable had the same type and kind shape of lighted reflectors in the front door panels.
  7. I heard that a member was modding the window and door switches with leds. I tried to contact that member I dont belive he posts on any Taurus forums anymore. Does anyone know how to swap leds in the switches and what resistor ohm is needed for the leds. I already have 2 size leds 3mm and 5 mm hope they fit. Just don't know what ohm resistor is need. I just have the regular leds not the 12 volt version.
  8. Thanks for the help everyone i'm going to grab 3 cans.
  9. These are some of the pics of the voltage regulator they made. So I would have to take the gen 3 alt cradle bracket and the crown vic alt cradle bracket and see how to mod them.
  10. I want a cheap way to upgrade my alternator to a High output alternator without the big price tag. I was thinking about getting a 6g alternator from a police Crown Vic 04 + that puts out about 200 amps. My question is would an 6g alternator from a 04 + Crown Vic would fit in a 97 sho. My other question is the Crown Vic 03+ alt is pcm controlled can it be converted to work with our cars with a voltage regulator. I came across these article on crown vic website about install 6g alts in different Crown Vics. http://www.idmsvcs.com/2vmod/alternator/convert4g6g/index.html http://www.idmsvcs.com/2vmod/alternator/mitsubishi/upgrade/index.html
  11. How many cans of spray fabric dye do you think will be need to complete color change the rear deck. Is there any prep needs to be done to the rear deck before painting.
  12. Thanks for the suggestion. I'm going to look up a good spray on carpet dye.
  13. Like many gen 3 owners I have a gray interior that I want to change to a black interior. The rear deck has some kind of carpet material covering it . I would like to know now is there a way to paint it or cover it with carpet. If covering it with carpet does any one know what kind or type. Also I tried using spray paint to paint a rear deck before and the paint caused the carpet to flake . I think I used and interior vinyl spray paint. Does anyone know a way of dying the rear deck, painting it or carpeting it to get a factory oem look.
  14. I have a gen 3 Taurus that has two incandescent bulbs in it. I want to convert the 3rd brake light in my Taurus to the gen 4 Led 3rd brake light. The gen 3 has two positive wire and two negative wires one for each bulb. My question was can I connect both positive wires together and both negative wires together and connect the to the gen 4 led brake light without over voltage. My next question is what is the resistor everyone talks about you should add to extend the life of the gen 4 led brake light. Does anyone know what the ohms of the resistor I need or where too place the resistor on the led board.
  15. Do I need to get the brake booster and master cylinder when I do the pedal swap. If a brake booster is needed from the donor car do I need to get it from a duratech model.
