    Definitive Cars - 13' Sport Project Build

    Black Overlays They are adhesive back AND they dont cover all the way to the body so you need to gloss black tape the exposed 3/16" or so if you want full black.

    Silver Sport Cosmetic Mods

    Yea got lucky with only a couple "errant" or incomplete diamond wires. Its all in positioning the template. Nothing behind it and the hardest part WAS "fishing" the line. Don't skimp on line length and brush up on your suturing skills as I used hemostats.

    Silver Sport Cosmetic Mods

    Mike, I used aluminum expanded metal ( which is just a larger weave than gutter mesh ) Started with a template then cut and deburred. I then Plasti Dipped and attached with black Kevlar fishing line. Hope this helps with your project.

    Silver Sport Cosmetic Mods

    Definitive Cars - 13' Sport Project Build

    Thanks I have heard that too. How about the 3rd row cargo lamp ? De-solder and re-soldering with resistor still the most viable approach ?

    Definitive Cars - 13' Sport Project Build

    Have you done the visor mirror lamps yet ? I pulled the mirror to get to the socket but can figure out how to pull the bulb. Seems more stubborn than any of the others. Any tips ?

    Custom Tinted Lights - Front & Rear

    It looks great and is right on track with what I have in mind. Did you cover the entire lense front and rear ? I was leaning toward eyebrows for heads and smoke just the center of rears but thought I wrap the back ups with something darker to continue the read black molding.

    Livernois Tuned an Explorer Sport!

    Riley is spot on. This debate has been going on since well before LMS ever tune the the first EB engine. Bottom line is; if Ford has to replace an engine or other large drive train component , they will send it to Dearborn for tear down and determine exactly what went wrong with all the...

    My 2013 Ford Explorer Sport was ordered today

    Say it aint so ! I'd give it until Monday ( your dealers are open Sat ? ) as its likely the plant will have pushed any built ones out before their shut down. My ETA went from 12/10 to 12/17 but I'm pretty confident it will be in first of week.

    Ordered today

    Well my silver Sport may have been built 12/6 with an ETA to Motown week of 12/10 but apparently it remains as "In Production" . Maybe they are making sure yesterday's TSB for the random smell is being applied. So I was forced to turn in my SHO for a crapy rental Camery ( on my tab ). Its only...

    Ordered today

    Hey Sciond, Thats 2 days earlier than you last thought. Looks like you might have it for that vacation road trip you hoped for :) Nice way to break it in quickly too. How did you get the revised date ? From Crystal ?

    Trying this from my phone!

    There is something to be said for both camps. I love the monochromatic of the black but ease of keeping silver or white looking good along with the contrast of the black Sport accents is cool in its own right.
