Since I've finally got my licence and got the Bull all put back together & running, I guess I should give her a try at this.

She's a 1999 Ford Taurus LX, 3.0 Vulcan V6 With The AX4S Transmission

Stock she was pretty much a base-model Taurus with a few accessories (Tape Deck, Hubcabs).

Her Story:

She was given to me 2 years ago by my uncle. After a thorough cleaning she looked almost brand-new. (I wonder why I got a job as a car-detailer laugh.gif) I saved money up from working to put into her, and I brought her back better than ever. I still have many plans for this car in the future.

Mods:

  • Removed Intake Silencer
  • Replaced Stock Floor Mats With Rubber Ones
  • Chrome Door Pulls
  • Custom SHO-Vulcan Gauge Cluster
  • Sable Burlwood Door & Dash Trim
  • Footwell Lights
  • Door Courtesy Lights
  • 2002 16" Gen4 5-Spoke Wheels
  • White Mirror Housings With Heated Mirrors
  • Mach Audio RCU & Tweeters
  • Clear Corner Lights
  • LED "Cool White" Interior Lights With Green Footwell Lights
  • PIE FRDR-AUX Adapter

A while ago, Sean messaged me & asked if I wanted to run for April COTM. I said yes, but I forgot to ask him to change the Title. Can an Admin do this for me?

Chris, you can actually do that yourself, I think. Not sure, maybe it only works if you bought a membership, but I can do it. Click 'edit' on the first post, and 'go advanced'.

Very, very nice. It is certainly up to my standards, and there are several members that have seen my now former Taurus who know I have high standards.

Good work!!!

Just an update, they wanted us to try a new paint sealant at work, and it took all of the wax off of everybody else's cars. However, she's got 2 layers of wax & a fish oil protectant so it didn't even break the seal on her. Plus shes still smooth as butter as that long time spent claying, buffing, and waxing her really pays off! No car beads water like mine... ph34r.gif

She looky damn good. Super clean.

Thanks a lot!

Ohh boy, this months gonna be close! laugh.gif Two really good cars!

I try to keep my car as clean as possible, I inherited that trait from my dad, he wouldn't let any one drink or eat in his car & I'm the same way. lol

Thanks! White looks good on any car, especially on yours. cool.gif

Its funny because my dad always drove black cars and my uncle always drove white. huh.gif

I am that way, too. My kids were trained from birth not to touch the paint or glass. No one can eat in the car. I will allow water if it is in a resealable bottle. Don't be hesitant to tell someone NOT to touch the glass or paint...and gods help anyone who slams the door. That's why I don't own a gun.

Nice looking Gen3!! I like the G4 wheels on it, much nicer than the steelies with hubcaps like my Gen3 is sporting.

Haha, everyone that knows me, knows that I'm like this with my car and doesn't want to test me... But I pitty the person who does ph34r.gif

Thanks, I like your Gen 3 too! The 5-Spokes really "flow" with the Gen 3 style in my option.

If you want a different look for your Taurus, I still have my '99 style hubcaps & the're in 95% condition.

So apparently I'm running for August....

Well an update, at the end of last month she hit 150K & runs smother than ever with the rebuild.

IMAG0010.jpg

The other night a girl backed into me full force and messed up my front bumper. With a bit of elbow grease she looks almost brand new! (I've gotta get some new bumpers soon.)

IMAG0019.jpg

I've also got a PIE adapter, LED interior lights (with Green footwell lights), and clear corners on the way! cool.gif

New rules! All entries roll over to the next month :) Since you and I had both been trying to run for a while now, I figured it would be acceptable to bump you forward too.

Thanks! There's still a lot work to go, the list never ends!

I just got my LED interior lights & my clear corners today! (Sorry I'm not the best at taking night pictures...)

IMAG0024.jpg

The green footwell lights match the dash really well & add some more color to the inside! (Even though the pic doesn't show it very well) I replaced the dome light & my door lights with Cool White LEDs, now I just gotta replace the ash tray & glove box lights once I put the glove box light in. The clear corners light up amber despite the fact that there's a clear bulb in them... huh.gif Still waiting on my PIE adapter.
