asc0205's 2007 Taurus SE

Here is my 2007 Taurus SE. I got it in March with 122k. It is my first car and it was free from my moms friend so it came AS IS. I cleaned and cleaned and washed and washed and waxed and got it to a place where I was satisfied as soon as possible. I can't even legally drive it yet but I must say I love this car!

Rejection Sticker

My first order of business was to fix the reason for the rejection sticker, the third brake light LED strip. $25 at the junkyard and easy install.

Curent state

This is how she looks at the moment with my minor improvements and fixes.
I replaced part of the washer fluid hose with adapters and a short piece of rubber hose.
The trunk has a leak somewhere so when i opened it the first time the liner was wet and when i pulled the spare tire cover off the compartment was filled to the top with water. this is why the liner is all wavy and damaged.
The damage to the front is from the previous owner but the hood, bumper, grille, and driver side headlight are brand new. The damage was after the new parts.
The rims are from two different bulls, an '01 and an '03, at a junkyard. If you look closely you can see the slight difference. I will be putting the '03s one side and the '01s on the other so nobody will even know!!

Interior

Here is the interior. Sorry for the out of focus pics, they were taken in a hurry and in my garage which is a not the most convenient place for pictures.
The door reflector has been my only interior fix so far besides cleaning (which it obviously needs more of).
The door panel is falling off as you may be able to see in one of the pictures but I hope to replace the vinyl with something cool (maybe carbon fiber fabric?) and glue it back on sometime soon.
Any comments or suggestions are welcome!

Go for the carbon fiber door panels I did and it really makes the interior pop!

That is exactly what my car looked like when I got it. Lots of potential! Looking forward to your progress.

Thanks guys! Paul you were my inspiration to put my project on the forum. I hope to do many of the mods you did. (spoiler, mirrors, grille, headlights)

Nice looking G4.5 you have there. When you are able to drive the car you'll fall in love with it.

IMO the Carbon Fiber look is too rice/childish/gaudy/1999. If you only have CF on the door panels it would look way out of place(not to mention I think it is more for a Honda/Toyota rather than a domestic). Someone posted up here about a vinyl brushed stainless that looked pretty good.
