    Buffed and Polished the Regal

    Thanks. It came out better than I was expecting. The hail dents are small, but there are so many of them that I don't feel like taking the time to pull them all. Thinking about making a claim after we get some hail, but I might not have it anymore before that happens. I usually clay first, but didn't take the time to do so with this one. There didn't seem to be much paint contamination for some reason anyhow. Just the cutting seemed to make it smooth enough.

    W-Body.com 2019 Calendar Submissions

    Sorry Imp, I forgot to post. Yes, it worked for me. I just paid $7.48, just the shipping cost! Awesome deal and I can't wait to get my calendar!
  5. Have any of you guys installed component speakers in your w-body? I'm looking for ideas as to where to mount the tweeters. The doors 5.25 will go in the stock location, but trying to find where to put the tweets. I'm going with the Rockford Fosgate Punch components. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk

    That turned out really nice! Ever try claybarring it beforehand? And who cares about polishing a car w/ hail dents. I polish my 95 Bonneville even though most of the clear is gone on the hood, roof and spoiler. Still makes it look tons better. I really want to get a DA buffer so I can really get a good shine on my cars and save my arms/hands the torture.

    For the front wheels yes, 2nd gen rims on 1st gens need spacers to clear the calipers. @Matt Your just jealous I can put my whole fist between the tire and body on the rear wheels and still have room to spare. I know what you mean, ive only seen 2 sets of aftermarket wheels that look good on the CS coupes to me and they`re both a 5 spoke design. Both discontinued IIRC.

    In my opinion... those look awful and don’t fit the style of the car at all. But if you like them then [emoji1531]
  12. Last weekend, I spent the day cutting and polishing the Regal's paint. Most of it was in okay condition minus the clear on the roof, but there was absolutely no wax or anything on it and the paint was pretty faded. I wish I had taken better pictures of before, but I'll post some that I took where you can see the difference if you're looking for it. I used a FLEX XC 3401 VRG DA polisher (limited edition pink, don't know why I got that, lol). I still need to do the wheels really well. Sorry, but the pictures didn't load in the order I wanted them, too, so they're a mixture of before, after and in progress. And, yes, it has hail damage and I am crazy for polishing a car with hail damage, but a new hood and trunk lid would fix most of it. 1) wash with Chemical Guys citrus wash red (I got some when Obsessed Garage had some in earlier this year) 2) Jescar Correcting Compound with Meguiar's microfibre cutting pad 3) Jescar Micro Finishing Polish with foam polishing pad...this stuff did wonders for the roof as the compound would not brighten up the color, but the polish did (first time using this stuff) 4) 2 coats of Jescar Power Lock polymer paint sealant 5) 2 coats of Colinite 845 insulator wax

    Just cheap Dupli-color truck and RV silver paint. At the very end, the pipes don't get hot enough to need hi-temp.

    I was wondering about that. It's amazing what little detail differences can do for a car. MemphisMan is a member on here who has that kind of skill/eye and I think I'm noticing little things like that much better. I also have an LQ1 car so I have the same tips as your vert. What color or brand of paint did you use? Does it have to be a high temp paint?

    A little sanding of the pipes, and a spray of brilliant silver paint made them look new again. Yes, they were black and ugly when I got it. The left pipes are not quite centered in their cutout, but I intend to correct that soon.

    Very cool! I'm planning on this spring to make it out there and bring her home. Maybe we could meet up or something. Nice to meet you, my name is Greg by the way. Nice vert, how did you get the exhaust tips so clean? Usually they are black with exhaust soot.

    Yucca Valley is just up the hill from me about 25 miles in the high desert.

    The reason I asked is that I bought an STE from a guy in the Yucca Valley area and was wondering how close you were.

    91 vs 95 LQ1 Comparison

    I haven't figured out the tranny issue on the vert. It started shortly after I drove it to the meet this past June. Here is the thread on it...

    I'm in Palm Desert. I am fortunate that I do not have to deal with the snow and Ice like in other parts of the country. The tradeoff, however, is that in the summer, it's over 100 degrees most of the time, and it's too hot to work on cars...

    I cant recall if I ever posted this one here but this is my 1994 CS coupe on GTP rims, I like it much better over the sawtooth ones it had. These may eventually be on the Vert when its ready for new tires.

    Roof repair need advice

    It’s several years old they would probably make excuses and I just don’t have money for a lawsuit either

    I’m going to pull the headliner and get them out so I can inspect and make sure there’s no damage hiding.
