Ive thought about that a couple times. I really dont think it would look good just because of the style.

Besides The Ford's Prayer that Shady_J and I had discussed last year, the Book of Henry (verse 4:22) reads 'for whatsoever bears body color at thy car's conception, shall remain body color unless altered by divine intervention'.

The good book says not to do it.

i will post tomorrow. i didnt take any and its dark out. I used it on the ground effect, rims, antenna, part of the back bumper,grill, mirror caps, and the port windows. ( wanted to see what tint would look like ) it worked wonders on the faded black trim. to bad its only temp. so its motivated me to repaint the trim high gloss black.

The only time the black strips look good on the Gen 3/4 is on the 1996 Taurus G, white model.
