    Junk Yard Thread, Never ending

    Theres always tons of Cadillacs in the JY from the mid 90`s to about 05-06. Would make finding parts and keeping up a really nice car alot easier. I`d love just about any of them save for a Catera or Escalade. That Fleetwood...Poor thing.

    W-body.com Southern meetup 2019

    Weather in May here can be hit or miss, kind of like April. It does stay warmer for longer in the year in these parts so we can always have one in the Fall if that time of year would be better. I`m going to the car show in the Vert regardless of any plan we have here.

    W-body.com Southern meetup 2019

    Well since I mentioned it I feel I should start the thread to share thoughts and ideas, but foremost I dont want to plan anything near the date of or close to the actual 2019 W-body meet up most of the guy do up north in case some of you crazy Canucks want to venture this far south, ya`ll more than welcome of course. I`d love to be able to make it up north but I really cannot justify a 12-14 hour drive to hang out for a few hours and then drive back. Well until the Vert 100% aligned anyways the coupe has an overheating issue on long drives. Theres a few members that expressed some interest in a more southern location so lets see what ideas we might come up with. If the schedule were wide open I`d recommend Nashville TN on the weekend of May 3rd-5th only because that the huge GoodGuys car show and If we rolled up in a convoy we`d definitely get some attention from the classic car community . Some of you guys have been through before and can vouch for the tourist attractions and restaurants, as a lifetime local I know several awesome places, several JYs around, a weird car museum, Nashville speedway might let us on their track for a few laps, lots of parking at my place for a gathering around the bonfire/cooler/grill or can always hang out at the lake doing the same thing. I dont mind if we choose a more centralized locale for everyone, just tossing the idea out there.

    W-body Nationals June 2019

    Hey guys do ya`ll have a set date? I`d like to get a southern meet planned but I dont want to make it close to the one you guys are planning. No way I could make that trip up north in either W-body this year but I`m really tempted to fly in just to hang out with ya`ll.

    Body molding clips

    Thats the thing I had in mind, I was sure I had several but still looking. Theyre yours as soon as I can find them for whatever shipping would be.

    convertible carpeting

    I did some measuring and swapped floor mats from the vert to coupe and vice versa and everything looks the same. I cannot tell there is a different in the rocker panel of floor board area. I`m tempted to just buy a coupe carpet and see how it fits in the Vert.

    Fun with Emblems

    Splitting the posts up here for... courtesy? IDK... If the 1994 gets the modded 3400 I want in it. Looks sinister with the wing and matte black This would probably go better on an International or non-miniquad model, more classy end of the Cutlass family IMHO. If the reverse bar was filled in repainted and the cursive emblem in its place, mind not the other 2. Not necessarily on this particular car, just this design in this location for this model, goes for all the pics really.

    Fun with Emblems

    Every now and then at a JY I`d see emblems in decent shape and even bought several off here in the past to use or sell. Ive played around with a few options I came up with for the Supremes and started this for anyone wanting the toss out a few pics or ideas. Vintage metal Olds Rocket emblem from unknown Olds From a 96 or 97 GAGT with a 3400V6 G-body Olds emblem, will match both sides Cursive G-body badge From the Intrigue or Alero

    convertible carpeting

    So i contacted ACC about carpeting for W-body convertibles and actually got a phone call instead of an email. Aside from the rear seat being different like I mentioned above there is also a difference about the rocker panels between the two models. They didnt have the specifics about why they were different but I`m inclined to find out this weekend.

    Body molding clips

    Only place and car I could find spares for was a JY Cutlass Supreme, no other W-body had the same type of clips that I could find, not even a B4U Grand Prix. I may have some extras, how many do you need?

    Welding coolant pipes.

    Dorman 626-100 looks like that part on the passenger side engine bay(LQ1) that runs down and back along the frame right to the "rear" of the engine right? Did the earlier 3.1MPI use this part as well?

    They make translucent red, amber and clear flexible plastic sheets with the idea of a temp fix for busted tail lights, the red piece would be perfect for that project.

    Previous post dude, I`d have pulled everything from it and given it to you for everything you`ve done for the W-body crowd.

    Junk Yard Thread, Never ending

    The Olds Toronado is kind of like the Buick Rivera, pick a year and you`re guaranteed a beautiful car. I found a 92 Trofeo in a yard a year or 2 ago and wanted one just like, only grabbed emblems at the time, didnt know other things were interchangeable.

    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.
