If it were my car, I would start shaving and smoothing the exterior. Remove the door ding strips and fill them in flush. Same with the strip on the rear bumper. Close the panel gaps and shave the handles.

:thumb: Good choice, cheap or not, they'll look good and help with braking, it's a win-win.

1. I was thinking body matching side mirrors.
2. Chrome handles (just the handle, not the entire assembly).
3. Possibly black or chrome the lines going around the car, the ones that run along the doors and follow to the bumpers.
4. You could go with either a full size spoiler like the factory on the taurus or a spoiler lip like the one on the 2010 taurus.
5. Carbon fiber or desert camouflage(digital) on the hood like so:

Speaking of wraps, you could do something awesome, like this F-117 Nighthawk-inspired wrap on this 458 Italia:

Where did you get the LEDs on your headlights and how are they hooked up? I would love to put them on my Taurus

at autozone and i just bought a wiring harness and ran it to the battery and ran a switch under the radio so i dont have to keep the lights on at all times. i can shut them off whenever.


wednesday im going to pull the speeo out and swap the bulbs and remove the coating dunno why i havent tried it sooner.

i just havent seen it done on a 4.5 gen, has anyone done it before? i say this because i have a display screen under the speedo.
