  1. A couple of interior repair questions

    Maintenance and Repair
    Hello all, ran into a couple issues while restoring my 1999 Taurus SE. 1: In order to remove the front seats, I have to remove 4 plastic covers from the bolt down locations. However, I have been having trouble getting them removed. Any tricks for getting them off? 2: I noticed that the rear...

    Glad to see your Taurus road worthy just one month after the accident! Took me that long just to get a new power supply for my computer.
  3. Be Careful Out There (PSA)

    Taurus and Sable General Discussion
    A while back I read that airbags deploy at 30mph and greater when a collision is detected. Interesting that G-forces are in fact taken into account (although I suppose that makes sense- hitting another car at 40mph is different than hitting a solid concrete wall at 40mph). I guess you learn...
  4. Be Careful Out There (PSA)

    Taurus and Sable General Discussion
    She believes that she was going 40-45mph as that was the speed limit. I'm not sure if there was actially an airbag failure or she was simply going slower than she thought. I wonder if its possible that the pickup truck was too high up to trigger the sensor? Either way, all is good, and no...
  5. Be Careful Out There (PSA)

    Taurus and Sable General Discussion
    Last weekend, a family friend was driving back to college after visiting family for the weekend when she was involved in an accident in her '98-'99 Taurus LX. She T-Boned a pickup truck, flipping the truck onto its side and pushing her bull 90° to the right. Airbags did not deploy, although the...

    Great to hear! Just a few more fixes and Barney will be good as new!

    Good to hear that they're honoring their warranty. I'm currently dealing with a power supply manufacturer who isn't so honest.

    Taurus and Sable Project Log
    Interesting- I never heard about Marti Reports until now. Sounds like it would be a great document for a car like this! Oh, and did you get your dash out for the repairs yet? It would be awesome to see you back on the road (safely) with barney.
  9. 2015 Q4 COTQ Voting Thread

    Car Of The Month Submissions And Voting
    Didn't think I would be voting on the same person twice in a row, but... Josh, you keep surprising me with your Taurii, and your '02 is no exception. It's a very clean example of your work, with tasteful mods that really add to its appeal. I wish you the best of luck and look forward to your...
  10. Fisher's 1999 Ford Taurus SE Restoration Thread

    Taurus and Sable Project Log
    Been a while since I made an update, so I figured I should post one. I didn't get much done on the Taurus while I was in Austin for Christmas, but I did begin working on the interior as I had the knowledge and tools to begin restoring it. As you can tell in the photos, the leather was very dry...

    Taurus and Sable Project Log
    Yikes- I've seen similar Town Cars around here for about half the price. I guess demand is higher up there.
  12. New Explorer

    Other Rides
    Beautiful! I've been wanting an Explorer (2nd gen, '99-'01) for years, but I must say that the current generation is absolutely stunning- especially in limited trim!

    Really liking the upgrades that you're making on your '06- keep us updated! :D
  14. Ttppss24s 2005 Mercury Montego Premier 2WD, (Tego)

    Taurus and Sable Project Log
    Very interesting design- can't wait to see the rest of the work! Also, is it just me or does the rear/side of the Montego look like a 9th gen Impala?
  15. TaurusSHO's 1997 Taurus GL

    Taurus and Sable Project Log
    Sweet! I've been watching this thread for a while, and your Taurus really reminds me a lot of mine (not only in appearance, but also in its background, etc). Personally I'd keep it, as long as it's been in your family (that's what I'm doing with mine anyways)- especially as nice as it looks...

  18. Fisher's 1999 Ford Taurus SE Restoration Thread

    Taurus and Sable Project Log
    It's actually not mine, but rather an 8th gen that belongs to my cousin. But I know exactly what you mean- I don't think that Impala ever really worked right! Complex explanation incoming... Story goes that my mom was driving to the store and the car "just died" at a stop light. The check...
  19. Help Identifying Brake Type (Drum/Disk/ABS)?

    Suspension, Handling and Brakes
    In that case, would it be possible to have Drum, Disk, and ABS installed all at once? Or do auto manufacturers typically have front and rear disk brakes in ABS systems?
  20. Help Identifying Brake Type (Drum/Disk/ABS)?

    Suspension, Handling and Brakes
    I figured it had drum brakes in the rear, but thought it was weird that the front doesn't have (or at least doesn't appear to have) the same system. I'm guessing it has disk brakes, although it just seems weird to have both systems in place at the same time. Perhaps there is some sort of benefit...
