Hey guys...
I'm a long time lurker....and I thought I should finally register and say hi...officially join the club.
I'm from North Carolina...I have an '01 SES with the Duratec, Toreador Red, just hit 50k a few weeks ago. Got a brand new set of Goodyear Regatta 2s last week. I got it a year ago as a former rental....the exterior was beautiful, and the interior was a wreck. It was a rental....and thus had a no smoking sign in it...that didn't stop some jerk from dipping snuff. He must have kept his spittoon on the console, because the fabric was coated in tobacco juice. It took me a full week of cleaning, with some help, and I still haven't gotten it all. To give you an idea how bad it was, the plastic lining on the outside of the window is permenantly stained by the stuff, and every nook and cranny of the car was coated. I had to clean the speaker out with a toothbrush and a little bit of water. Every time I clean it I find some more of the stuff to clean up...
But I've gotten most of it off.
It certainly isn't perfect, but I think I've made it my own...there really isn't anything more that I could do to it to make it better in my eyes...though I'm sure some of y'all would disagree! :D
I've learned alot from this site...I'm truely addicted now! I probably won't post very much....but I really enjoy browsing the forums. Y'all have a wealth of information! :)

Welcome to the site! It looks like you have a nice car. You might want to check the detailing section to see if N2_Space can provide some new ideas on cleaning that interior.

Just a little question, not really directed at you, but when ever a person posts a pic of thier car, why do they blur out the licence plate? Sure it seems like the right thing to do, to "protect yourself" or something, but... why?
I dont blur out my licence plate, mostly because I dont care, and it is a neat one.. I got

V12-MVP
because, well, you know, the V12 engine is the Most Valueable Part

I'm in Raleigh...but I sure know where Bunnlevel is. Quite a metropolis... :biglaugh:

You know, I don't really know...False sense of security? I mean, who has the time or the will to go to the length to look up my license plate and see who I am?....and once they have it, what are they going to do, TP my house because I own a Taurus?
I guess it can't hurt though...there are plenty of weirdos out there.

Thanks for the great welcome, guys (and gals). B)
