this is week five of this flu that has been tormenting me, two rounds of anitbiotics, and nothing seems to work. Going to see my doctor again in the am, hope that he comes up with something better cause this flu is really doing a number on my stamina and is cutting into my time wagon time.

since the wagon came home from the etest and safety check, all I've done was to put my plates on it and pulled the middle seat out and stripped the covers off them and washed the covers and also pulled the middle seat belts and washed them too. dunno what was spilt on that seat and the belts but it was nasty and the rinse water looked like thick black coffee but did not smell like coffee......

but the seat now looks like new and smells like downy

can't wait to do the front seats and carpet

I've been busy this week end.....pulled out the front seats and carpet...




all the floor needed was to be washed to clean up the sticky coke stains....
rust free rules!




I then power washed the carpet




while the front seats where out I took em apart and tossed the seat covers into my washing machine.





once the carpet dried out it was time to put things back together









it smells a whole lot better, the seats are nice and downy soft....

Ah people, the location of the engine under the hood vs eye pleasing location of the shaker on the b body hood just don't line up.

this would better suit the LT1's cold air needs

but this has always been my favourite firebird hood

Can you explain this a little better?

with the maf against the TB,,. shaker scoop in upper and lower pieces. top of the inrake is a pefect platform to work off already has drilled and tapped holes for a base piece,., square filter in the shaker,
I think it,d look really good,.

in my mind the engine sits too far back in the engine bay for the shaker to work right

then if I cut up a hood for that mod then it would be lost with out these in the fenders

If they can make a shaker for a 2004-06 GTO you can fit one on that wagon!

http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=2815

The GTO engine sits a lot further back. Smile

well in your mind,. pat malkovich.. Laughing

see above pic,. shaker is almost at the cowl,. set back motors denote fast cars,.

as i said the whole top of an lt1 intake would be perfect for putting a shaker scoop on,. even if the shaker wasn't the actual air intake for the motor, add a little vacuum flapper door and it would be over the top cool,.

Have you done the home plate delete yet?? if not go peek at some pics of an lt1 with all the factory plastic off the motor,.hockey puck etc,.
A decent exhaust decent cold air intake and a good tune,. will pick up 25+hp on an lt1 easy enough,.

Scoob tune (95PCM in a 96 chassis) and cruise set at 75, I get 18MPG.

As for keeping my foot out of it, I am quite familiar with the pedal travel....

very reasonable compared to magazine prices.

Pat just to be different doesn't the oldsmobile have a different style rear bumper cover. You know with a flare at the bottom of it? Also my brains on overtime and I was thinking about the sides of your car too,... what about grafting in some grooves into those doors like the newer style bonneville's have? We could always use a bead roller to make some piece's and weld them in?
