    Ok thanks.

    CS getting cleaner

    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?

    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.

    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.

    Very nice! Hey what part of California are you located?

    Junk Yard Thread, Never ending

    Ok, I remember these cars. It doesn't look that bad aside from it being dirty. Lots of mold so maybe it was in a flood. It's a shame.

    Do you think I should go back and get it? I didn't look, don't know why but are they mounted in the trunk?

    Junkyard run today but not much for first gen stuff. I did find this low mileage 88 Regal. And then there was this rare bird, an 89 SHO Taurus with it's original rims, moonroof, radio, and I think original mobile/cell phone! Looks like it had a trunk mounted CD player controller or something. You can tell it's been sitting outside in the weather for a very long time, super dirty and filled with dead bugs, mold, and leaves. I can't remember if Ford offered automatics on these cars but this one is a 5 speed.

    GTP091 is in Kelowna B.C. it looks like so he's not close to Edmonton.

    Yeah, Manic confirmed it as HUD, moonroof, and the LQ1 with cloth AQ9 seats but no factory CD player. Maybe it was this member, GTP091? I helped him locate this 5 speed car a while back for tranny parts. Car has been crushed by now I'm sure. I'm going to PM him. Thanks Steve. http://row52.com/Vehicle/Index/1G2WP11X0MF280324

    I think this is a rare one, it's sad to see it in a yard. Waiting to hear back from Manic but it's probably bad news being a rare one in a yard waiting to be crushed. https://row52.com/Vehicle/Index/1G2WP11X2MF281782
  13. Next week, I plan on putting new rotors/pads on all four corners of the 96 CS sedan. Anything I have to pay attention too or is it pretty straight forward?

    96 CS sedan brakes.

    Thanks! I'm going to see if the local parts stores have something. I want to change the brakes out this Friday. I just got my caliper tool set in to turn in the rear pistons today.

    What's the best way to pinch off the rubber hose without damaging it. I've already ordered the stinkin "special tool" so I'll use it.

    I really like that maroon Lumina coupe, that's a beautiful color! Other guys can chime in here, it's the little plastic or rubber female end that's mounted on top of the windshield header where the chrome pin of the convertible top locks into. I don't have a vert but that's the best description that I have.

    That's too bad. That Bonneville next to it looks nice too, I hate seeing that. TyphoonKid lives in a salt free area too so those cars are probably not rusty at all. Korey, if you can go back and look at those pin cup deals on the verts, a lot of vert owners are looking for good ones all the time.

    How to clean my Cutlass.

    Hey guys, I want to do a good scrub inside and out on my extremely neglected and dirty Cutlass. The car sat outside in a yard from the previous owner under a tree for about 2 or 3 years and it is covered with dirt, grime, mold and worst of all tree sap. I was thinking of using my buddy's power washer but don't want to damage the paint any more that I have too (even though it will need to be repainted down the road) and how to get rid of the crusty, hard tree sap. I was thinking of maybe hand washing first and then going from there, maybe power washing and tree sap removal later if it needs it. I also want to protect the paint until it is time to repaint it. Pics of the car is under new member introductions, jiggity76 to give you guys a better idea of what I will be dealing with.

    How to clean my Cutlass.

    So the repair place in Chicago got ahold of me today, they said they can't repair it. They referred me to a place in Detroit, MI, a place called Specmo I think. I called them and gave them my part # and they said YES, we can repair that. So I'm going to send it to them next week and hope for the best. I'm getting worried about it. I checked with a place in Canada that supposedly had an NOS one but they said nope, it was sold awhile ago. I'm also checking with a lead from MemphisMan, an NOS one listed on Ebay, I'll check with them next week to see if they actually have one.

    How to clean my Cutlass.

    I talked to a local GM dealer and they gave me a contact of a place in the Chicago area. The GM service department sends off their customer's clusters to this facility and he said if they can't fix it, no one can. I'm going to give them a try. I called them tonite and talked to one of their techs, he said he's pretty confident he can fix it so that's my next plan of attack. I have a couple of good working UB3's but they're non HUD clusters and I really want to have the original HUD cluster working or find a NOS one to keep the car original as I can. Thank you for the offer though Rich, very generous of you!

    96 CS sedan brakes.

    I just looked at my STE RPO list, not listed so mine doesn't have this option. Thanks Steve. It is listed on the International's RPO list, so it originally had it. Cool!

    Thanks Steve! Hey, do you know if any of the sedans had the lighted key ring option? I know the GP and International coupes have em.

    96 CS sedan brakes.

    Oh that would have not been good, thanks a million! I don't know what I have up front, I was just going to use a C clamp on the old pad and push it back in. Ok, I will pay attention to that as well. If I have twin pistons, I'll switch back and forth. I'm impressed that GM put twin pistons up front!

    Ok, thank you. This is my first W body brake job so I'm not sure what to expect.

    My buddy has a pipe wrench lovingly called "The Persuader" if we need to use it!
