I need to find a silver rear bumper cover for a gen 4.5. Some jerk backed into it when I lived in a apt in XXitsville, in Austin. I could cover it with a DARE sticker, but I think bumper stickers look tacky.

Changed the oil & filter in my car a few days ago...set for another 7500 miles/6 months

Tomorrow I'm adding in the blinking LED to the sunload sensor, and adding lighted cruise control w/a new leather wrapped steering wheel.

....but they don't have any rear covers for gen 4.5 Taurus
How do the new headlights fit? Are they genuine Ford, or aftermarket?

I have picked up my bull today


She sat for a nice 4 days, in a comfortable parking lot, surrounded by Ford E-250's to keep her safe and company.

So now I got 3 days with the bull and to fix the power antenna this weekend.

Fun fact, Toyotas will never die. NEVER DIE.

The usual headlight restoration to see if they can take out the yellowing on the top parts and some light scratches.

Changed the oil and filter this week; it's got Valvoline Durablend 5W20. Changed the ATF (Valvoline-brand Mercon V) and tranny filter (Motorcraft) today, and added a handy B&M drain plug to the transmission pan for future convenience. Bought the parts and pulled up the wiring info to change my Gen 4.5 cluster to white-faced gauges and to add a 'T/C Off' switch- perhaps next weekend if the weather's clear. And I'm possibly getting my 35% Formula One tint installed next weekend, too. If not then, it's happening by the end of April for sure.

I haven't driven mine in almost a year. I charged the battery, removed the SHO rear bumper I was test fitting, and began reinstalling the door panels that have been off since I replaced the broken driver's side mirror taken out by a hit-n-run. The car is going back into family rental car service. Mom's SVTC is worn out, so until I replace it, she gets the Taurus.

RIP TCCA

Nothing since I'm out of state, but the oil did get changed before I left. Sitting for 2 weeks without being driven.
