    Ford Taurus 1999

    Materials Used:

    ABS Cement (Plumbing section of Home Depot)
    Hand-Powered Sander and lots of sand paper
    Bondo putty filler to fill holes.
    Primer
    Textured black metallic paint...
    and LOTS AND LOTS OF FREE TIME....

    I didn't take a pic of the BEFORE so I got this pic off google, of the ugly ford radio...



    After cutting the whole thing up I mounted the LCD frame in flush...



    Then masked up everything and poured in the ABS cement, gave it enough weeks to cure...
    Try not to inhale this :P



    Sanded the excess layers with a Jobmate power hand sander, and sanded the other minor imperfections then primered...



    Once the imperfections were gone, and smooth surface, on went the textured DUPLI-COLOR black paint. Then, once dried, all went in the car...



    DVD-RW Burner and Bluetooth Pioneer Radio

    looks good. i like how so many new cars are coming equipped with 7 or 10" screens built in at the factory too. (taurus does now have screens with their newest models) not so much because it will make carpc life easier, but because it wont be much of an issue to have the screen showing all the time. i went through a lot of work to have a hiding LCD screen, and its nice but more and more i think its becoming less of an issue (with theft that is).

    just because of the irregular oval and also slanted design towards driver, i thought it would be impossible for me to do all this, but i never gave up hope hehe and this is my first masterpiece! Deuce gave me inspiration. As for the wiring... PAIN IN THE ***, THANK YOU FORD! LOL
    Stupid radio in the trunk and control panel buttons in front, doubled the harnesses in the vehicle in both trunk and dash, and not all connections up front. Rather than buying that kit for 150$+TAX which includes an additional wire harness extension to run from trunk connection from best buy which was a rediculous price thanks to ford's wiring job, i decided to cut all the wires off, loop the 2 harnesses in trunk so the needed wires come right back to the front (LOL) it cost me nothing to do, I was happy lol. As for the defogger, the wire is part of the ICP which was removed, I realized after, THERE IS NO DEFOGGER WIRE, what do i do??? After a few searches on google, I found where the "trigger wire" is, at the ford GEM module behind the fuse box on driver floor (BLUE/ORANGE) wire, tap it to ground enables defogger system for mirrors and back window, and when that worked, I found the defogger light trigger wire (12V), so i put a button and a led on the guage bezel for defogger, the trigger wire shorts to ground to activate the defogger+led, a 2nd push button turns carpc on and off (in case, its on 24/7 anyways), the 3rd button opens garage door
