hi brian. I was thinking it was SH0Forum to, I started looking at buying gen 4 SHO IN 2009 ON bringbackthesho, they had a link to SHOForum I try to join them then and got turn down. they still haven't let me in.
And on the gen ?ion I'm retired navy and we name airplane by letters F-14's like F-14A,F-14B, no C, F-14D. LIKE A GEN I,II, no III, IV they have FV-14D Photo mod, FB-14D bomber, there were no ABorC photo/bomber so all of them are gen IV. D mod but the airforce call FB-111A a gen I, BUT it was build on F-111G . So if the miltary can't made up there minds why should Taurus and SHO family fight about it. I owned a 93 SHO, love the body of 2000-2006 shock , and now have 2011 SHO. WOULD LOVE TO HAVE ONE OF EACH. PS it not a SHOW but a S.H.O.!!!! I use both S.H.O. is spcecial but SHOW sound cool. SHOW-OFF , SHOW-OUT, SHOW-UP, IT's all good. We are all Taurus brothers and sisters.

I left the place you're talking about because of the way they treated people who were new. I really don't even bother with them at all, because all the Gen 6 guys have moved to the Ecoboost Owners Forum and it's much nicer place. Lots of info exchanged and a much better friendlier place.

Yep, that nasty SHF place would be the site almost all of us late model 2010-2012+ fled from because as Brian so eloquently states it... the douche baggery from the older owners.

It really is too bad as I would completely agree with the last part of your statement that we are all fellow Taurus family, regardless of trim levels and/or model years.

I suppose I shouldn't be surprised that they are actively declining new membership, especially God forbid, if it happens to be an owner of the newer models. Seems on par with the mentality of the majority of their membership and their ADMIN staff.

Too good for their own britches.

Oh well, shoman04, you got yourself a great SHO, sounds like you also had a great previous model as well, just glad to have you here and over at EcoBoostOwnerForums too so we can all hang out and share our experiences with other Taurus owners who appreciate and respect others.

Hey guys I thought I would do a little refresh on the gauge pods to show what is available. These pods will fit all taurus's 2010-2013. Below is the black face plate pod that has similar pattern so center console on sho, for those who have don't sho's I am sure I could replicate your center console. No gauges are included




This pod shown is with the woven aluminum trim and the face plate is cut from the same material as the aluminum trim in our cars.




So if you are interested getting on my list, or prices. please email at crash712us@att.net. As I would like to start collecting deposits for. This build will only be 10-15 pods, and I can't be certain if there will be a 3rd run of. Due to usable life span of the silicon rubber mold that they are casted from.

We are making very slow, but steady progress this week on my installs.....

Today we got my gauges hooked up (well at least all the power to them).

All the sensors are in place, but we called it a night after having gotten a very late start today.

Here's a pic of at least my gauges illuminated only...... I was quite pleased with their overall appearance.

Not only because of Chris's absolutely out-of-this world gauge pod, but also with how well the officially licensed set Ford Racing Series gauges coincides with the OEM instrument cluster.

This pic is horse poop in comparison to seeing them in person, but yea, both the gauges and Chris's pod are kick @ss for sure
