All I have right now is a quick cell phone pic I took before I left work, so you guys have to wait until this weekend(IF the weather is nice!) to see some decent pics..



Specs:

1995 Buick Roadmaster Wagon Limited
Blue leather int.
MAB with wood
Car is from North Carolina(NO rust!!)
99,700 miles currently

I need to re-do the trim that goes around the wood, and add the rubber stripping to all of the chrome moldings(which I have).. A good detail wouldn't hurt either lol

Water pump is leaking and it needs a fuel pump, so this pic shows its current state.

Car is currently receiving;
fuel pump
plugs
wires
Opti(new complete unit from gm)
WaterPump
(2) tires

Again, if the weather is nice this Sunday, I'll get some better pics up..

Nice! I prefer blue and blue-greenish hues myself...

Sucks the pump went but at least you get to fix all those little problems at once now, awesome you have a lift to work from

You probably already know how and I'm guessing everyone else does, but we redid the rubber moldings on my brother's RM last year with 3M trim tape and it worked excellent.

This is for the trim that always falls off the metal? Damn, I didn't even know you could buy it! Laughing

The ones on my brother's car were all falling off and scuffed, we sanded them a bit, cleaned them as well as the mounting surface with denatured alcohol or something like that, painted them with a ton of adhesion promoter then sprayed them metallic gray along with some clearcoat I believe...then used the 3M tape with the red backing. They came out awesome and surprisingly they've held up to a lot of abuse!

Do what I did and loose the rubber, and polish the stainless.

I really like the polished look on the wagon, it's just plain classy looking.
