Back to the current project

I brought it into the shop and started to tackle a  few of it's issues



first thing was to tackle the rust in the trunk













then I fixed the bend in the hood as you can see in this picture it was bent quite bad









I then cleaned up the steering wheel a bit

Wow! Super job on that hood. The entire front end looks better now.

Today the work continued.

here is the completed trunk



and yes those are all the missing rubber strips,



and on to the front bumper, the passenger front frame horn did suffer a bit in this accident, but nothing that a torch and a fork lift couldn't make right

















it still needs a new bumper cover trim and some bumper guards but it's now driveable as is

^^^^^I laughed out loud.  Well played.

I've seen RMS with a Caprice front clip....put an Olds grille and make it a ninety-eight.......or continue Pontiac and have a Parisienne

turned my attention to the vinyl roof, it was very dirty with years of dirt and stains, took some spray nine and scrubbed away









it cleaned up well, but there were some stains that just wouldn't come out, but over all it is in good condition just still a bit dirty looking..... so



















a bit of SEM and the top looks a whole lot better



time to fix the lack of pinstripe on this thing



















it's starting to look a bit better

Nice job Pat! Miss your old "How to" videos. This is exactly the type of project wagon guys like.

Nice hood repair!

If you decide you want a southern grill let me know. I NEED to go salvage-yarding again before it gets too hot here. There are always sedan grills with perfect chrome in the yards here. The wagon grills are getting hard to find, but the sedan grills are still a dime-a-dozen. Well....$20 most likely. Wink

Why is there sugar on the hood? Or is that flour?

While the trim cured I pulled out the buffer and started to clean up the tail lights, then sadly discovered that GM, had painted the black lines on the tail lights, guess I'll have to put them back on later I also buffed out the back up lense, they were milky/cloudy dingy looking

Kinda like the tailights without the black lines,looks very clean.Due you prefer the 3M products better than the Meguiars,the trim buffed up nicely and hard to believe its the same car already.

with out the lines makes it look like a 92-93, I like the 3M products, and the meguires, and the superior stuff I get from robert. I just use what I got on hand.

I used the 3M buffing compound, then the 3M fine buffing compound, then some meguires carnuba wax

seems like a lot of effort for a "winter beater" that hasn't seen any winter driving,..
it's still an ugly roadmaster sedan no matter how much you buff it,..

Yeah but it's my ugly roadmaster sedan, I want to use it as a dd year round. If I don't get it done just the way I want it now, it may never get done once it's on the road

Cool project Pat,saw it on the other side .

 Not a fan of the white grill,Texas Mike has the fix.

 Personally I prefer all white,nice white walls,and lose those disgusting mudflaps. affraid

Lorne the grill stays till spring, our junk yards look like this right now



I don't like yarding with a shovel and a tool box......


Those mud flaps are new I just put them on, it's part of my sleeper look

I like the white trim. The car sits a little high, but I'm guessing will settle.

It does need a chrome grill badly.

I have officially driven this car both last night and early this morning, I'm impressed with both how it feels and handles. very little body lean and none of the wavy boat like sensation that most cars like this one have. I'm quite pleased with the 9C1 upgrades and the monroe severe duty shocks.

The LT1 in this roady is tight and strong as is it's posi. I love the fact that this morning I was doing 45kmh when I punched it hard, the trans down shifted the tires spun, the ass end wiggled at bit as the tires regained traction sinking me deep into the rich limited leather seat as she launched down the road.

completely different story on the ride home. this morning there was no snow on the roads and my drive to work was nice and clear, however in the 8 hours since I arrived at work it snowed a good 6 inches. the beefy looking snow tires on the rear of this car are old and hard with absolutely no traction!, the fronts are just as hard but are only all seasons

I now know why this car ended up at the impact auction, it can't stop with these %#@@&%@#@crap tires!

I need tires!
