PostSubject: Paul's Newest Wagon (slow)Build Thread   Sun Jul 03, 2011 11:37 am

Another one..

1995 Buick Roadmaster Estate Wagon
LDM non-woody
Tan leather interior
Early 95, big mirrors but flip-forward cup holder, and 94 style airpump routing.

I bought this off of my stepfather. Unfortunately, it hasnt been driven in about 6 months and is GROSS. Its also been used as a storage shed for that time also :/

This will be my build thread. Will be a SLOW build.

I've certainly got my work cut out for me!









I need a minty steering wheel if anyone has one Smile




HOLY MILES BATMAN! 211k!




Heres a spot i wiped off with my shirt just to show how filthy a car can get after sitting under a tree for 6 months




Yah, its filthy in and out, and has 211k miles. Was repainted at some point, looks like a maaco job. its pretty shitty. BUT, did i mention its a RUST FREE North Carolina car Smile


Plans? Tint windows. Semi-gloss black budget paint job. Gloss black set of SS wheels.

I got these wheels off Doug for Free, thanks again man!
They were ROUGH to say the least. I stripped the paint off 2 of them(bitches had about 4 layers of paint on them per wheel??)/ Then, spent some time on the new Rim straightening maching at work. Two of them were so bent they wouldnt hold air for long. Still need to strip the paint off the other 2. Also, got some used tires for free at work. Off a BMW m5. heres the two i stripped so far

Looks like it doesn't need much, and that muck is nothing that a power washer can't fix. Nice score!

Damn dude, another? At least you don't have wood to peel off!

Never thought of it until I tried it on my truck's dash, but I bet you can find some SEM paint for that car's interior and redo the wheel with it to make it look nice.

Those seats will clean up with one part Woolite to six parts water, mixed in a spray bottle, scrubbed with a horsehair brush, then conditioned afterward with leather conditioner. Believe me it's worth it, lol. The Woolite is good for general interior cleaning and is way more forgiving than Tuff Stuff or even Simple Green.

Thanks guys, I can't wait to clean her up and see what I'm working with.

Brian, thanks for the offer but I'm going to try to find a Minty stock wheel.

Maybe new pics tomorrow if I start to clean it up..

w00t! She saw daylight again! Started right up with a jump!



Just had to take a mid-wash pic to show the grudge!


i KNEW there were some whitewalls on those tires lol







Just a basic wash, my girlfriend helped so a big thanks to her! still need to do the door jambs and interior. A good wash revealed how shitty the older maaca respray is. paint peeling in a few spots, with the original LDM beneath it. Few small dents but overall very straight, and oh yah, no rust Smile

Wow, I think i see a pic where the whole car is in the picture!

LOL at those wheels I gave you, those were BEAT! I'm glad you got some life out of them, they wewre rough enough I considered scrapping them, but it wasn't worth the trouble to dismount the tires...glad y could save them

Looks like a good project, very sold base to work with.

I actually really dig the tan color.. LDM.. It's too bad it got such a shitty respray at some point. I hated the tan at first but it's grown on me quite a bit. My girlfriend hates the color lol so it's still probably going to end up satin black lol!

Yea, if she hates it she can get her own car, lol.

Is it actually peeling off the car? Or can it be wetsanded then cut and buff? There are a few cah detailahs on heah...

I mean, if you do the satin black, you gotta do all the door jambs, the insides of the fenders, etc, or it'll never look right... Wink
