Not sure how the protocol goes on this site; they all have their own "code of conduct." That being said, not here to offend anyone or pretend I know "more about" anything. Just looking around to pick some brains and see what is working (or not) in the CD3 modding world. I have a couple of Fomoco vehicles that I've been tinkering with for the last few years, getting them ready to give to my 2 sons for their first cars. Both were regular drivers of mine at one point. One is a 2006 Milan Premier with a new front end, after hitting a concrete retaining barrier while hydroplaning across a large puddle right at the entrance of an exit ramp off a Hwy in Charleston, SC. But I think the 2010 Fusion body panels and grille complement perfectly and the 2012 Milan tail lights I retrofitted really give the car a unique look. The other is a 2010 Fusion Sport "clone" with Ford Taurus SHO seats and murdered out trim (including a non-chrome grille I found online in Canada) all in Tuxedo black. Both cars have KW coilover susp, BBK and "custom" OEM 20" rims (Polished Lincoln MKX on the Milan and Taurus SHO "keyholes" on the Fusion). I'm a believer that there is always a better way and have crossmatched parts from Ford, Mazda, Lincoln, Volvo and Jaguar onto these cars. I'd be interested in hearing about any custom mods anyone has done, like swapping Brembo Evo Front calipers onto our cars with a bit of Dremmel tool/file work on the lower spindle mounting hole.... yes, it's been done already. Anyway, I'm looking forward to chatting. Cheers!
