PostSubject: my new toy   Sun Jul 06, 2014 9:38 pm

Hi, new to the forum, just spent the weekend picking up my 94 RMW. I drove down to Virginia to pick up a rust free example. I really hate rust.

pretty much blew all my booze and hooker money to buy this so unless I sell some other toys it is going to be nothing but little repairs and upgrades for a while. the only thing "broken" are the rear window struts. I will have the wife glue up the edges of the headliner and the missing clips on the drivers door.

I have to find and unplug the air compressor for the self leveling shocks. the PO had new KYB shocks put on the rear and the lines are just sitting there.

apparently I cant post a photo.  Mad

On my 95 RMW, that compressor is located on the DS, behind/above a plastic panel in front of the front tire.

WELL I HAVE YOU TO BLAME FOR THIS!

truly great to hear from you!

after you posted up your purchase I started looking into them. I really got the bug about 6 months ago. I just could not find a good one at a good price here.

so far I am very happy with my purchase.

I can post up pic's today or tomorrow, but I was able to add them on the wagon portion of the SS impala forum

White, wood delete, and clean enough to eat off the underside? I'm jealous!

THANKS!
unfortunately it is not a wood delete. I had thought that the wood grain was removed, but unfortunately they just painted over it. it looks a little like ass around the door handles and license plate, but my main concern was body rust.

the PO had bought it from a vocational school that cleaned it up and painted it then auctioned it to raise money. he did some minimal repairs and then sold it to me.

I got it for the same price as a rusted out POS goes for here in Michigan.
he made money, I got a good deal, and for now, I don't have to remove the wood grain.

I found out yesterday while replacing the struts on my back glass I do not have a center stop light on my car. my GUESS is that it goes on the back glass above the latch and was broken off.

Yes it's also a handle for shutting the rear glass from the inside.

Does your cruise control work? The upper brake light has something to do with that.

Good looking ride you got there. Welcome.

thanks! and an intro to Cory would be most beneficial.

this is actually Buick # 3 in my current stable and my first LT1 powered vehicle. I am working on trying to get my 75 LeSabre convertible on the road this summer. and my 61 skylark while fairly rust free needs a rotisserie restoration.
