Back:


I think it makes everything looks tighter, and cleaner...my plates arent in too good condition, so yeah.. overall i think it looks good, what do you guys think?


I washed my car, and that is how dirty it got on the way home from the car wash!

Did you paint the chrome bars on the front and back of the car around the Ford emblem? Because I know on the SEL's the rear is body color and the front is black, but you have an SES. I was wondering because I bought a spare front grill to paint and I was wondering what kind of paint you used and how it is holding up - it looks good. Also, how did you not paint on the Ford emblem in the front - did you take it out, if so, how? If you didn't paint anything all these questions will be really dumb, lol.
Thanks

SEL's do NOT have body colored spears. My SEL was chrome, and all other SELs are chrome. The only ones that are NOT chrome are the 2004's. They dont even HAVE a spear in the front. Just a Ford emblem.

He didn't paint his. They are body colored from the factory. He has an SES Sport. This is the ONLY pre-2004 Taurus that has body colored spears in the front and back.

IMO I like the chrome touches better.


I dont like plate frames myself, but a alumni one is a-ok by me. But for gods sake get rid of that free advertising on your car.

Why does everyone blur out their license plate. It's not blurred out when you are running down the road or parked at the mall?

Are you sure? I know I've seen SELs around that had body colored spears in the back, I didn't see the front of all of them, but I can confirm seeing one with the spear black in the front.
I guess people could have been painting them or something, but I doubt it for as many as I've seen like that (at least 4 or 5).


Not to mention this could be one of those minor inconsistencies - or an limited time thing...

Well, Let me put this quandary to rest... my 2002 SEL did not have body color spears as an option
(otherwise I would have gotten it) likewise the 2000-2003 SELs did not have it as an option either. Only the 2000-2003 SES SPORT Editions had the color spear.

It wasn't a "quandary" because I knew I was right. I didn't need to argue about it. :p
