    Illuminated Sail Panel Crests

    Hello All,
    I've got a '93 Sixty Special and the crests on the sail panel (behind the back seat windows) are the illuminated type when you have your parking lamps on. One of these crests are not lighting up, and i checked the power supply for it and the wires are live so I wanted to know where I could get a replacement crest with the plug in back of it, or if it is possible to replace the bulb or whatever lights these up. I've checked ebay and there are on there, but kind of expensive and I do not want to have to deal with a dealer, so any ideas anybody? Thanx for any help you can give me.

    I didn't know such a thing existed... Do you happen to have pics? I'd like to see them in daylight and then lit at night, if you could.

    Sorry I don't have any real answers for you. Although, this would bring me to question (and forgive me if this has been answered already), but is there a caddy dealer out there that we are associated with that'll give the club discounts? (I may be able to provide one if we don't )

    Re: Illuminated Sail Panel Crests

    fftopic:
    We have no discounts for a dealership right now...... Not a bad idea though....... Maybe if we're big enough we could get shell to give us cadillacforums discount cards, which would save us 10c/gallon on premium, since no one here uses ANYTHING but premium......

    Id like to see if we could get someone to get us parts cheap........

    End fftopic:

    Jacob, please post pictures of the crest removed...... Does it look like any sort of backing can be removed??? If so, you should be able to replace the lighting element.. If not, then you may be SOL, and have to get a new one.......

    Those things are pretty expensive, and I believe you have to replace the whole thing. I had mine replaced when someone tried to steal them, but just left a deep gouge. Cost $130Cdn through the dealer, but now both of mine light up

    I'll try to get a pic of the old one later, but here it is lighted up at night:

    PS- I believe Devilles with the vinyl tops had these too.

    the pics

    Hello everyone and thanx for the info,
    I also consulted a dealer about replacing a non-existent bulb. $91 per enclosure and they'd have to special order them, so I think I'll hold off on that for now and just install the gold package (minus lightup crests) once that gets to my house. But here are the promised pics of my crest, the quality of these pics is not as clear as the last one posted, but you'll get the idea. I'm starting to look around at salvage yards around my area hoping that once set will eventually pop up. Thanx

    Those would look cool with the opera lights on my Fleetwood, and there's already wiring there for the opera lights so I could install it relatively easy. Maybe I'll see if I can find a set when I go to the junkyards this week.

    Finding them...... maybe...... You might be able to find them at a junkyard........ Or pay dealer prices, at like $80 a piece (or whatever $130cdn is).......

    Installing them..... Well, youd have to make all your own wiring, and cut a space for them to go......

    Oh God, I can't do that myself! There are emblems already there though so I guess I just have to do the wiring, no? The more I see them, the more I want. I will have them.

    I believe the emblems are just glued to the vinyl top or the metal, whichever you have......... And the emblems he took pictues of...... (see above)...... have some sort of thing that goes into the body of the car.......
