Don't know what one you are using, but the one we came from just never was very pleased with the Gen 4 SHO owners. They always seemed offended when most of the new SHO owners did not show a lot of interest in the earlier models of the SHO....and I'm not so sure they weren't interested but most of the new SHO guys (like me) just never had much knowledge of the earlier generations of the SHO. Can I suffice to say that when new SHO owners started showing up at the other forum, it was never a marriage made in heaven with the earlier generation owners? Gotta say I am really liking this forum, glad Chris recommended it.

wow. from my time here and what i have seen i can pretty much tell you it doesnt matter what gen you own. we have had people ask about other non taurus cars and how to fix them and they got the help they was looking for.
I hope you guys like it here. for the most part it is pretty laid back and useful.

Send a message via Yahoo to TonyTheTiger57
I took my center speaker grille off with ease and just wanted to see what hid underneath, did you drill holes for the wiring to go through the dash and where did you go through the firewall for the wiring and mechanical hook up?

So how did you get the center grill off? Does it just pull off or is it more difficult. I also was wondering about getting the wiring from the gauges through the firewall.

Hey Chris.. and other gauge pod followers

Just signed up here , sorry for the delay. To follow up on the face plate; I was able to get a pretty close match, not sure if it was any closer that what you got. I will email a photo and let you take a look at it.

From what I can see/read it seems the Gen 4 oops!! Gen 6?
seem to be more welcome here
