My friend had me do his new to him Taurus SHO. Lemme tell you...this thing is schweet :lol:. It moves fast for a 16 year old car and looks pretty cool if you look at it the right way. Anyways, it's oxidized, rusting, bent up, beat up...but until he does a full restoration/repaint, he wanted it looking as good as possible. I did everything in my power. Nine hours went into it, six of which were polishing! I havn't shampoo'd carpets yet or cleaned up the engine, exterior was the goal today. He'll be back in a few weeks for the rest.

Process:
Wash
HEAVY DUTY clay
Menzerna Powergloss Compound/Cutting Pad/Speed 6.....x 3 :eek:!!!!
Poorboy's EX-P

BEFORE:

















HALF AND HALF of the Hood (look above the ford badge):


Headlight before/after (not the best pic but much more clear):



AFTER:

Too bad buffing and washing cant put the missing pieces back on the car, or make the rust go away for that matter

No offense but the SHO taurus could quite possibly be the ugliest "performance" car there is.

And Barker I dont think your integras gonna be running any times at the track right now

no it isn't but I am planning on selling the benz taking the profit from that putting an engine in the r selling it and then in the spring getting a c6, or a c5 with some work done to it. If things actually work out that way I don't know we'll see

Cool car, Hate that color.

And guys lighten up..As non-attractive as it is they are cool.

Besides one turbo and stock internals can yield well over 400+ WHP.
