  1. I did mean 6,000 lol. I was just making up for the year of working on it and not being able to drive it. I plan on keeping the mileage to 5000 a year, especially if I register as a classic in 2019. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  2. Posting a little update. I've had the car driving since August roughly. So far I've put 6k miles on it since I completed my overhaul. The only thing that went wrong was the new radiator cap I purchased from rockauto. The seal was bad and would leak from it, however that has since been fixed. The car will be hitting its 100k milestone today!! Excited to see it! My plans for 2019 include the following. 1.) Get the mufflers and tips replaced. 2.) Address the fading trim around the convertible top, and the lip spoiler. 3.) Find a nice set of Bonneville GXP wheels for the ole girl. 4.) Clean up the underside of the car and rust proof with light suspension restoration. 5.) Replace the bad interior trim pieces. 6.) Overhaul the sound system. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  3. Did my transmission filter/fluid change last night. I was honestly surprised to see how clean the pan was. The fluid was still red, but had a darker color to it, and I wasn't sure if it had ever been changed in the last 10 years so I went ahead and changed it for preventative maintenance. There was shavings on the magnet, but not much sediment in the pan which I figured was good as I didn't have any issues with shifting or TCC lock. I also went ahead and put Valvoline Maxlife synthetic ATF in since it was a $4 difference. It took a little over 6 quarts of ATF for the pan drop and filter change. After it was done I immediately could tell the difference in shift quality on the first drive. Easy job, a little messy, but worth the time. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk
  4. As requested, first picture of my index finger pointing to the track is where the window/guide came out. Second is the moulding I replaced. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk
  5. Lol! I can, I still have the door panel off, but I'm getting ready for work now Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk
  6. You were correct, lowered the window enough to put the front guide in, then rolled it back up and popped the rear guide in. Works great now! Also go my new window guide weather seal put in. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk
  7. My window doesn't come out of the tracks when rolling down or up, it gets about 5" from going down in the door and just binds up. It tilts forward towards the front fender some when its rolled down. I'll just have to take the panel off and look Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk
  8. Awesome thank you. I have never taken a door panel off this car but I imagine it's not too terrible, but is in neccessary to get to the guide clip? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk
  9. My current project with the Cutlass is trying to get the passengers door window to work correctly, I know for sure the rubber window/mirror seal is bad and is causing the window to bind up not roll up all the way. However I can't get the window to roll down all the way either, it seems as if a window clip is bad and making the window tilt forward. Does the convertible utilize clips to retain the window in its track? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk
  10. Update time! I managed to get the outer tie rods, and lower ball joints replaced over the course of a month with a vacation in between it all. This past Friday I got it licensed, and Saturday I had some new shoes put on and got an alignment done. Really got to enjoy it this weekend, with 600+ miles drove! Now it's on to the small stuff, like interior odds and ends, and complete vehicle detail. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk
  11. Ahhhhhh... the quality of Chinese tools. Didn't even get the second rivet head ground off before the angle grinder shit its pants. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk
  12. I picked one up today, hopefully it'll go smooth from here lol Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk
  13. Started on the ball joints today. Didn't get very far though since I'm going in to work tonight. I figured my dremel with the grinding stones would be adequate to get the rivet heads off, but that takes way too long and chews the bits up too fast... So I have to get an angle grinder now.

  14. I got the tie rods done, the jam nuts were a pain in the ass. But I got them unscrewed and clean the thread up, and put it all back together. I called Firestone since I used to work there and seen how much front lower ball joints replacement would be... I'll take y'alls advice and do em myself.

  15. Been slowly trying to do the tie rod ends on the car. Passenger side is almost done. Have to cut the castle but off since it decided to get stuck on and wont unthread, but once that's off itll be quick to swap over. Drivers side jam nut is being a bear, so hopefully some penetrating oil and heat will work... as far as the ball joints go, I may just pay a shop to do it so I don't have to worry about trying to get those rivets drilled out myself.
