Different trim levels, and if I am remembering correctly, on the ones with the column shift the center console actually can fold up to become a center seat. Not positive on that, but if I'm wrong someone will correct me.

I'm probably wrong.

Console Shifter was an option on all bulls regardless of trim level.

^That doesn't apply to Taurus SHO, Taurus MT-5, Taurus Centennial, Sable Platinum Edition, or Taurus SES Sport trim levels lol

Yep, that's right. Floor Shift comes with the center console option. Column shift came with the "folding goofy thing" option. Floor shift is less common but I'm not sure what determined which cars got it. Just a certain ratio I guess. Premium trim/option packages tended to get it as a given.

Anyway, the moment you've all been waiting for....

Hmm, what's this sad thing doing out here?



Holy cow! This thing is mint!



Where did the interior go??



Oh? What's this?















New feature!





Power stuffs! I need to vaccum the floor really bad btw



And of course, no Bull Project goes without a blood sacrifice



Also as a bonus, here's "Steve", my riding buddy and sleeping pillow when time allows.



All in all, it turned out amazing, IMO. The Black contrasts with the grey so nicely. The black floormats I found also help a lot with the new theme (although the driver's one is a bit filthy). Why Ford didn't make this a default interior is beyond me

It'a also really nice having power driver's seat (passenger is still manual, and I'm salty because today I found a SEL with power passenger, but oh well, not paying another $50 and having nowhere to put this manual one), and rear folding bench. Btw, what does the spinny wheel on the front of the seat do? Never had such a strange feature before

A lot of work and heart pounding anxiety went into this project. Hopefully you guys think it turned out as well as I do

Album here, one picture got censored out because of a funny word in the link. http://imgur.com/a/INwMm

Putting the L in SE, one step at a time

Power seats are definitely nicer! Great work. The spinny wheel on the front part of the seat controls lumbar support.

"conti shifter" and "ContiShifter" are two different things

@ice445 I would go back and grab the console lid, as well as the parallelogram shaped door panel inserts and child seat hook covers (on the rear parcel shelf) to make the black seats blend more with the gray interior. Just my $0.02

Looks great!

Thanks! And I agree, I'll go back and grab those items to mix the theme better. I'm surprised at how nicely the grey seatbelt tangs mix with the black seats though!
