So.... I'm pissed that i'll have to order some paint to match my car apparently... since no one in town has it in the spray cans (damn Ford and their Lt. Denim Blue)

I found some of that metallic paint at Wal-Mart and I'm trying to mix n match the cover color with the metallic underlayer to get as close to my paint as possible.

This is what I've got so far... I think the headlights were a failure... at least when it comes to matching... although i like the idea/shape and all..... besides.. i needed new headlights.... lol... the previous owner tried to acetone these clean... all it did was melt some of the plastic in a fugly smudge all across the lense...

And my amp keeps me happy...... along with the 'Bass Bucket' as i have affectionately dubbed it. A 5 gallon bucket on the back of my sub, packed with cotton fuzzy and sealed and treated with Dynamat soundproofing material... it doesnt sound bad at all......... not bad for a 50 dollar project.

And of course... my flowmaster rocks my face off.... best 130 bucks i ever spent! [url=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v89/Ryanqzqz/IM000556.jpg][img]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v89/Ryanqzqz/IM000556.jpg' alt='' width='1344' height='900' class='attach' />[/url]

Next on my agenda is dual flowmasters......new plugs, wires and i wanna go for brand new internals, eventually..... and with enough saving, my buddy and i are going for a supercharger install, and some hood work and body work..... cuz we wanna use this car to advertise our body/engine business we're trying to get off the ground....

Somebody in your family must like Lt. Denim Blue. Two Taurus' with the same color :D
My father in law has the same color on his with the blue interior. Looks horrible.

Actually, the wagon is darker blue....... i forget what ford calls it... I think its gunmetal something.....

which kinda sucks... cuz i can't trade painted exterior parts between the two.... which means the dent in my passenger rear door is there to stay... the dent puller i have won't grip on the (convex) curve in the door
