Found an 04 Sable with the black leather interior and the full wood grain treatment (including steering wheel).

Found an 01 Taurus with the tan interior. Extremely clean carpets and seats. I've never seen one that clean in JY before. Somebody took the driver's side door, so it won't be clean for much longer.

Was at the jy yesterday and cam across a 3rd gen silver taurus gl that someone had done a rear disc brake conversion to, looks like the car had been sitting for a long time and in horrible shape but still got a good look at the work involved in it. Walked away with a vacuum distribution block and a corner running lamp that day and managed to find the day before a good condition coil pack off a gen 3 sable. I've got the dark grey interior with cloth seats but would like leather but can't seem to find anything in my area. Short on cash at the moment too lol....

Cont leather shifter, slider/flag not broken, spare screws, spare light bulbs, got 3, 2 are good. 658 correct bulb for this. Opened up 3 before finding a flag not broken.

Easy access to the console parts as per pic. Parts quite dirty so I used household ammonia and a tooth brush on them to clean. Pic is my car, not in the JY.

Used 5/8" wide strip of shelf liner and pliers to coax the bulbs out in the JY. 100% success

Saddle soap on the leather shifter and it is ready to install. My wagon has one, now my sedan will also.

Nice hot day, no mud.

Saw an 03 Taurus Sport with an extremely clean interior at the JY today. Non-smoker, no rips, tears, or dirty spots. All pieces are still in the car. Silver trim pieces don't have any scratches. If anyone is interested, it's at Gary's U-Pull-It in Binghamton, NY. This car has been place out in the yard in the past week.

There are 2 Taurus Sports on the lot right now. What are the odds of that?

At the Pick A Part today, total $10.56.
About hour home to home.

Have not tested the antenna but there is another one out there is this one is not good. One on my wagon is bent but still grinds up and down with some noise. bit of a trick to get one out.

The Lin trim emblem goes bad if in the sun too much. Mine starting to fade.

Switched out the original trim for the JY trim which was in nice shape.
Rare find, 4 screws, 2 mins max to remove.
Pic of the old one out of my Lin.

Holy grail of junkyard finds today. A green 96 loaded sable with JBL audio have to go back later for the subwoofer. Everything was in great shape. Anyone know what the differene is between the JBL sail tweeters and the mach ones? I noticed the JBL ones had extra wiring to the 6x8. Is it also worth stealing the rear speakers?

I also found a gen 4.5 silver cluster from an 05 Sable. Quite rare if Im not mistaken. My jaw dropped when I saw it. Had that bad boy out in 20 minutes when it was my first time popping a dash open

Also pulled a Mach system from a 98 SHO the other day. The RCU seems to be water damaged though, or theres a connection problem since it cuts out for a second and the volume resets sometimes. Have to open it and see. Sounds great though. Hopefully the JBL is even better.

Also found three* cargo nets, all in fine shape. Decent black factory mats from one of those oddball dark black interior bulls, and an SJB from an 05 Sable with RKE and DRL. This place is awesome. Total spent so far is only like 100 bucks...

I saw one that had the boring black one, the 05 I pulled the SJB out of. This particular 05 was the only one with silver faces. Of course my sample size wasnt realistic so youre probably right, but its still nice to have to put in my cluster for only 20 buckaroos Actually I know why that one was black. Motor was blown and they must have swapped in a junkyard vulcan and cluster from a dead car.

Also how do you pull out those Gentex mirrors? An guides around here? It had one but im not sure where to cut or how to remove.

My Job1 2003 has the silver/gold-ish faces,







My wife's old Job2 2003 did not. Black face, charcoal gauge surround.
