Shelbyracer78's 2002 Mercury Sable Ls Premium (Allison)


Recommended Posts

You couldn't find the stock mounting brackets and trunk liner for the CD changer?  Are those liners the same for the Taurus and the Sable or is the Sables trunk shaped a little bit different?  If it is a little bit different I could see that being hard to find...it took me a few trips to junkyards to track down the liner with the plastic cover and case holder.

I like those rounders They really make the car look a lot better. Now you better burn off whats left of the old tires with multiple neutral drops

I like it when I take my car for inspection or tires.   "What color is it?"   "Maroon" since I can't say Merlot, they wouldn't understand,   *tech writes "RED" on the sheet*

I got the CD changer from a friend who didn't have the trunk mounting brackets for it, plus I like it where it is. Nice and easy to get to. If some had pics of the trunk brackets I would make some and install them but until then its staying where it is. lol

I am proud to say that I have gotten some unobtanium for my sable.

Eibach lowering springs!!!!!!!!! They are used and I have cleaned them up since this photo. With the Eibachs will brings the need for new struts (which this car needs BADLY ) And for that purpose I have gotten some KYB GR2s from Rock Auto! The plan is to install everything this saturday and try and get an alignment done either Monday or Sunday.

After fighting all weekend for the last 3 days, I have now entered the low life. Danny (Rohand901) found these springs on facebook one day and bought them. I had a feeling he wouldn't want to swap springs around so I asked him if I could buy them from him and he said yes. So the springs are Eibachs and struts are KYB exel-g/gr2. I took the car for the alignment today and everything is set. So thanks Danny for helping finally lower this car.

I'll help get you more excited about it.  If it looks this good on a red car imagine how good it will look on a black car.

I'm a real stickler about my colors and Merlot doesn't really qualify as red.

Isn't Merlot a "Red Wine"?

I had a chance to buy a red Lin Cont, "RED" like fire engine. It was a ford truck color. When they ended the regular production of Cont's, they made speculation cars and some used colors from whatever they could find in the Ford line. Wife did not like it so we got Silver Frost. That rare color for Ford. :pat:

So then I got 2 Sable wagons that same color. Still think they should make real RED cars.

I've gotten into heated exchanges about the difference between Maroon and Red. This happened most with the Explorer, multiple people called it Maroon, which it was not. Put dark toreador red next to that Merlot color and one is clearly red while the other is Maroon.

I'm glad my car caused you much butthurt today

 

Let me know when you would like to debate whether or not my Focus is yellow

 

 

It's clearly Tangerine Orange. Or... red.

"Maroon" since I can't say Merlot, they wouldn't understand,

So what color is Ivory Parchment as in my Lin Cont?

Title says it is white. But that is just Gov = Politicians.

Maybe Beige. But the guy at DMV likely could not spell that.

At least Silver Frost is "SILVER". Maybe that is why they are so "rare" :pat:

People can tell others what color their car is.

Black, White, Silver, Brown, Green.
