    1991 Deville has made me happy!

    I bought a 1991 Deville a week or so ago, I bought a 1992 Seville about 2 months ago. The STS I have put a ton of work into only to still have a miss and just decent gas mileage. The Deville however I charged the A/C changed the wipers and she runs like a top. I will do a tune up just because the car sat for 2 years but after installing some tunes in her today I couldn;t be more happy.

    Also to mention the STS cost me 2k plus every dime I have sunk in it and the Deville 1k plus no money in other than wipers........

    Not to say the STS sucks but other than handiling doesnt compare to the Deville.

    The Deville does need a paint job it is currenty white with gray on the bottom. Any suggestions? Had a guy offer to paint it for me today for 1,000 bucks but a buddy at Maaco says for 575.00 he can have it looking like brand new. I have been thinking all white as I'd like keep it near stock as possible.

    Maaco is a national chain too, so I'd imagine their work is guaranteed. Research it more before you sink money into it though, that seems like a get-what-you-pay-for deal. Just my opinion.

    Problems with the STS? Head on over to the Seville forum in the PAST VEHICLES section and ask away. We are here to help, and I'd imagine you'd get exactly what you need.

    CadillacLuke24 the Seville forum doesn't have near the traffic as the Deville forum. That's why a lot of the Seville guys hang out here. Agree Maaco is national chain run by their corporate little thing. You get their brand paint which is a bit better than Earl Sheib and One Day. I used them on company trucks in the past because I knew the drivers would just take them out and thrash them again anyway. At least Maaco would buff out the nibs, One Day would just lie to you about it and expect people to believe it was rubbed out.

    Aye that kinda stinks. In that case take a crack here I suppose. Never hurts to try

    Sounds like Maaco may be worth a shot

    Make sure you post some before and after pics. It's always interesting to see what others do to their car. How does the top look?

    I got my factory wheels polished and chromed. Threw on a set of Vogues and totally changed the appearance. Not many of you youger guys like that look tho.

    Ragtop is in pretty good shape except on the doors but I will probably be able to find those pieces somewhere.
