I wanted to share some more pictures of this beauty. You will notice the (moderate) underbody rust. I have been working on this with POR-15 this week and will post the "after" pictures this week-end. It's coming together real nice. [can someone tell me how to post pictures in the text instead of thumbnails?]

Gorgeous!! Where do you live?

When I first bought my '96 Fleetwood, I used the KBS Coating three step system for my undercarriage. It is similar to POR15. Has held up very well and keeps the undercarriage looking like new.

I just finished using the KBS coating system on my Caprice wagon. Love the results!

I live in Miami but the car spent most of its life in Pennsylvania, hence the rust. And even though it only has 8,900 miles, the car must have sat once for an extended period of time without the salt washed off. Great to hear these undecoatign systems hold up over time. Will post pictures of the finished result soon.

If I didn't know better I'd think I was at a Cadillac dealership in 1978 looking at buying that car. Beautiful!!!!

I love Key Biscayne. When I lived in Miami I took some pics of my '96 there. I can't wait to finish residency and move back to South Florida. I am jealous!!!

Have you joined up with the Cadillac-Lasalle club of South Florida? Or taken it up to Tower Shoppes in Ft. Lauderdale on Friday nights?

I did repaint the oil and transmission pans with POR-15 Chrysler Blue, which is the closest color I have been able to find - they did have some surface rust....
