Hello,

My name is Jose, i'm not quite sure why I've never got around to joining before this point. I refer to the TCCoA forums every time I have trouble with my MN12. I'm in AZ and have been a proud owner of a 97 4.6l for the last 10 years. I always had one around, as my father owned a 96. My 97 is a bit of a Frankenstein set up. I used my fathers 96 as a donor for my 97 and swapped every part I could. I couldn't keep the 96 on the road and it had been in the family since day one. Interior is mostly black with mark viii seats. Currently sitting on a pair of 18x9's off a 2015 Jaguar Xj. It's a working progress but its coming around and never plan on letting her go.

I should be able to get a few of the interior pictures up tonight but i'll definitely post more tomorrow. I'm finding myself getting ready to smooth out a few dings here and there, prepping for paint.

Welcome!
Thank you. it took a lot of to transform this from the tri brown/tan interior to the current two tone. The only blemish is on the dash, it has developed two cracks that made me steer away from painting it. Figured I would complete the all black once i'm in the market to replace the dash. But may just replace the dash and keep the tan, its growing on me. And now im not sure if i would like the all black better.
