    Hello all!

    I shall introduce myself, excuse my ignorance when it comes to forums and how they work. I’m Sarah, from Missouri. I’m excited for the W-Body meet as well. I’m also down to meet anyone who want to have a cruise or meet. Somehow, no one in Missouri exists with a WBody I guess. I own a 1992 z34 284 Lumina, and enjoy long walks to the parts store.

    Recovered sun visors

    Put these back on today. Look so much better than the old tattered ones.

    Getrag 284 & axleshaft replacement.

    Presuming you have a 5 speed Lumina Z34, than you have a Getrag 284, unless it's been swapped. Order axles for 91-93 Lumina Z34 with manual trans and you'll get the right ones. Tip, ensure the stub shaft on the driver's side axle either stays in the trans, or you remove it from the axle BEFORE you hand it in as a core. You'll be searching for a new one and won't find it easily!

    NOS 88-96 Grand Prix applique

    I wish you only the very best of luck to you in your endeavors to sell this item.... HOWEVER... One can simply remove their current part and spend some time with 180 grit then a finer grit of sand paper, grey primer then Valspar's exterior black gloss paint then exterior clear coat gloss spray paint from Lowes, Home Depot etc and get the same look on existing parts. For way less than $80 one can do both sides if elbow grease is available to use. Dude I couldve gotten you a JY part for the cost of shipping, they give stuff like this to me at the yard I`m always at. But it wouldnt have been the same shape of course. @MemphisMan, I`ll grab one next time I`m there. Ive been interested in the same idea you had for those just in case events.

    Replacing a shift boot.

    Pulling this comment to this thread...I'm thinking the shift boots were different between the 5 speed W-bodys, I know the shift knobs are. jiggity, I think you got the above part number from the Cutlass Supreme parts catalog, correct? Here is the shift boot and knob from my '91 Cutlass Supreme, which is totally different. I've seen a lot of CSs with the same boot and knob as I have. I've also seen a lot of boots on Luminas that all look the same, and are different from the Cutlass ones. I'm going to pull my boot off and have one recreated by a local upholstery shop. Mine is torn on the front and back.

    Hello all!

    Yes, I think I've seen this interior. Nice car all around. You'll learn a lot about it here if this is your first W-body.

    Replacing a shift boot.

    I think that looks fricken sweet! Now if only you could match the steering wheel cover... (probably a bit much) Not that it matters now, but as an idea I think black with white stitching on both would look awesome.

    Replacing a shift boot.

    I know, I know, I know it's tacky but I've always liked this "universal" shift boot.

    Trunk leaks

    ^This. The studs on the taillights have sorta rubber washers on them and they disintegrate with age. . When they're bad enough, you can end up with a spare tire well that accumulates a lot of water.

    Hello all!

    I wonder if the amp from a Bose equipped Caprice would work. Corvette wouldn't because the amp is in the radio, also Camaro (1993+) anyway, not sure about third gen.

    Oh no, I must go. I’m so glad mine is 100% rust free. It’s never seen the salt!

    Wow, I didn't realize that was a 284 car. That's one serious first gen there.

    W-body Nationals June 2019

    One of the higher ups from the SCCA called me today. He said the planning will start at the January SCCA meeting, first Thursday of January. He also said we could run the W-Body as a class if we want and we could do like a cars-n-coffee but I figured we didn't need to be a private car show because that's kind of the basis of the meet.

    W-body Nationals June 2019

    I was abrupt in my earlier post, apologies to Al and thank you for getting this moving so early so we can have a great 2019 meet, I've actually been cooking something for the past couple of months to pitch for the summer meet but you caught me off balance as I wanted to have a motel and rates and all before I posted. --------------------------------------------------------------------- I've been thinking about this for a while and would like to propose that this year's Summer meet happen in Erie, PA. I started talking to people locally a while back and believe I can put together a good deal of activities, here's the proposed/optional itinerary that has resulted: Friday: Roll into a small motel (actually looking at a few already that would be privately owned and off the beaten path so we don't have any problems with noise levels and have more bargaining power as a group to secure good room rates. Two have pools ... again I'll scout ahead and get pictures, ect.. beforehand.) Friday night: Vote on dinner based on what's nearby and go eat, followed by the customary standing around in the parking lot drinking. Saturday Morning: Plan "A": SCCA Autocross event at Lake Erie Speedway, spectate,drive your car, ride along with someone else... or sleep in and skip it if you'd prefer not to go. I've spoken to the SCCA about the possibility of us coming in preparation of this pitch already and we are welcome. Plan "B": Stand around the parking lot and drink. Saturday Afternoon /Noonish: Plan "A": Our usual picnic hamburger/hotdog style lunch at Presque Isle State Park - Perry Monument (this shows up on GPS, which I value as a quality so we don't have to crazy convoy unless we want to for fun) By the time we get there my Son will already have several kayaks and life vests waiting for those who wish to toss one in the water (we have 2 singles and 3 tandems, and enough life jackets which are mandatory to clothe a small army) There are grills down there so cooking is not a problem. Presque Isle has beaches, lagoons, (which are accessible a few feet from where I'd like to do this) and showers so if one were to have a kayak mishap there is a place to clean up and shower ten minutes from this location. Plan "B": Stand around the parking lot and drink. Saturday Dinner: Vote on style of food, Erie has everything, authentic Mexican and Thai, pizza joints and Italian, and literally everything in between. My little family is an insanely busy one so sadly enough I know every restaurant in town well - from the fine dining "underground" to which pubs have the best burgers and subs. Plan "B": Stand around the parking lot and drink .... but with Pizza or a grill or something. Saturday night: Plan "A": I'm a member at a local chess club, there are chess boards there but I've never played chess there. "Clubs" can stay open until 3AM in PA and my club, "The King's Rook" has two levels. Downstairs is a bar, a soft couchy area, seating at both tables and booths, and a tiered and sunken rave-like room with a large stage and a bazillion whirling lights in front of a dance floor and flanked by railing with elevated (or rather not sunken) walkways, one of which has another small bar. Upstairs is another bar, another couchy soft area, more tables, another stage, a counter with very simple food like Hot Dogs, 6 pool tables, a dart board, shuffleboard table and a door leading out onto a deck where a tiki bar is. There is a short school bus which has been converted with booth style seating that's upstairs and provides minutes of entertainment as well. Saturday in June means a band- a GOOD band will be playing downstairs and a reasonably good band will likely be upstairs. Drinks range from reasonable to cheap, but there will be a cover for entry. I've spoken to management and made some loose plans, non-members are not allowed to buy drinks so we would be arranged as a "party" which means you would simply declare yourself as a W-Body.com member and get a hand stamp to buy drinks with member status for the night. The dart board takes quarters like every dart board in every bar in every city, but pool, shuffleboard, and various board games (including chess... go figure) are free to play all night. Plan "B": Stand around the parking lot and drink. Sunday Morning: Breakfast at wherever - or - Lowville drag strip before departing for our respective homes. ------------------------------------------------------------------- The Good: Plenty to do, and a bit more centrally located for members that can't drive all the way to Toledo The Bad: If we want to Autocross we're limited to one weekend in June, or one weekend in July as the SCCA only races once per month like this. -------------------------------------------------------------------- Rich, there are not one but two BXX Evans in the Erie area, no worries. If we do this I'll compile some information on paper and pass them out so everybody has proper names to GPS to stuff and a map to Presque Isle (again the lunch location does show on my Android GPS so a map would just be neat) Please let's not let the W-Body.com meet be planned expressly on Facebook.com even if we decide against Erie, that really sucked that it went down like that for 2018.

    They look great! I'm worried about the finishing results of my CS pie alloys, I hope someone can replicate the Oldsmobile lettering and correct shade of tint.
