Beautiful SHO. I love the color of the engine, and it's got a mean looking stance. gl in COTM

Are the tails like the old Thunderbird sequential lights? If so, damn! You beat me to it!
Pics! Also, the interior with the trim... Where did you two-tone, and how/where is the two-tone applied?

Nice car!

The car's in winter storage right now, but I will try to get more pics asap.

Yes, the 3-way sequential tail lamps work like they used to on the Cougar and Thunderbird. (GIF image of T-bird sequentials) I grafted a third reflector dish and bulb in between the other two.

That looks exactly like SHOFUNs other SHO he has.

Most of the SHOFORUM guys know who SHOFUN is

What did you use to paint the motor manifold etc? Also that is a very sharp looking car.

The intake, front valve cover, and misc. parts were painted with generic high-temp paint. This is not a powder-coat job.

The 2-tone interior was mostly a matter of eBay parts swaps. New black seats, door panels, console, carpet. Trims are painted.

The aluminum trim kit (not pictured, too new, kinda trade secret) is based on a fake-wood kit from which I got the outlines. Wasn't too hard from there. I also added some black suede leather.

You'll have to see it at the convention.

How do I get parts like those for my Gen 4? Are they all custom, or do they make parts for Taurus'?
