Well I got Christene back today. This pictures were taken about 20 minutes after I got her back. I haven't washed it or waxed it yet. My body guy said I have to wait 1 month before I wax it. That's ok, because I am taking her back to get the hood buffed for a final time and get the rear bumper repainted.

Looks great! One nice touch if you want - take the chrome spear that's in the grille and replace it with a body colored spear which you can get from some place like fordpartsdirect.net or paint yourself...I'd like to do this on my car sometime...

OH GOD I WANT!!!!!  :notworthy:
Thanks for the compliment!!!!!!!111!!!1111! She's getting there. This accident really really set me back.... But oh well nothing I can do.




As for the spear, can you buy them body colored? Because actually mine is broke from the accident. The left 2 clips a broke so I need to get a new one, i just shoved it in for the pics. :)

Edit: Yes you can. But it's sure as hell not worth $127.90. That's sooo weird, the list price is $63.95, but my price is $127.90. I'd have to see one before I jump to conclusions.

why not just take the spear off? based on your grill in that picture above, i think it would look hot, especially with your car's body color. either way youve got one hell of a sweet ride on your hands B)
definately a sweet ride no matter what

but if you wanna do a grill mod, get some Al mesh from any hardware store, then spray it metallic black and replace

What would I do if I were to remove the spear? Just use gutter guard over the whole thing?

That might look tight. If only I could find the damn touch up paint in that color. I can't find it anywhere.



(Off topic: Any one seen the commercials for taxi? Buckle up for safety mother... Ok, I'm done.(the commercial was just on))


Only if I could get that windsheild banner! :p

Hey, very hot car! I love that color on the Gen 4's. You haven't been around the south side of Chicago lately (Evergreen Park, Beverly, Mt Greenwood, Oak Lawn, or anywhere else close by here) That car looks so familiar... I do remember any very nice looking Taurus, and it looks familiar, so im wondering.
