Finally had time to install my roof spoiler this weekend and also installed a 3rd brake light.

Info on that fourth brake light? I have that spoiler from Spoiler Kings too. Nice add on. I think I want to do that brake light and disconnect the factory one.

Attempted my wheel bearing this weekend. Yeah, **** that noise. That **** was practically welded on. I blew through a can of PB blaster, busted a pipe wrench, and bruised the **** out of my arm trying to get this god awful wheel bearing out. 4 pound hammer didn't do anything besides make a nice concoction of pb blaster and metal shavings.
I think I spent around 12 hours in total (spaced throughout the day) trying to get it removed. I had a hub buster on order from Amazon, but they somehow managed to ***** up what city I lived in.

I ended up taking it to a shop and they had to take an oxy torch and beat it with a hub buster for 30 minutes before it finally came out. Ride is a lot quieter now and the car doesn't vibrate like it's having a seizure. I used a wheel hub assembly from SKF.

I took my MKS to the shop for the second time in a week. Ended up coming home empty-handed. Parts I need for completing upgrade of the timing chain, water pump and high volume millings oil pump are not all in yet. I'm waiting on o-rings and seals of all things. Lol.
They're hoping the missing parts will be in today so that the car can go in tomorrow for them to install. Crossing my fingers.

Honestly, I was 95% tempted to do this. I've watched so many wheel hub removal videos and they make it look so easy. My only fear was that if I did do it and it didn't work, I'd have to get it towed to the nearest town 15 miles away (was out in the country). If I was at my apartment I wouldn't give two ***** as my mechanic shop is right down the street, but I don't think my neighbors would appreciate me swinging my 4 pound harbor freight hammer at metal for hours on end.

Add these and it doesn't quite as much like a standard Taurus.....Now I just have to figure out something to do with this awful grill.

I always wondered if you could just swap over the fenders, bumper and hood from a 13' and install on a 10'. Maybe the design on the door wont line up then, i dont know. Always been a thought of mine

Today at a little maintenance work on the forward torque arm, tightening and increasing bolt torque of front subframe bolts and steering rack bolts. Seems to have helped road feel and shift smoothness. Stupid rubber bushings. LOL
