Go in through the wheel wells to do the plugs, dont even have to take the wheels off, just turn them out the way. I love white cars, kinda looks like the car is wearing a white tux.

i was waiting for someone to say white.....funny thing is its a very light grey ive never seen one with this color or maybe i have and thought to was white...either way she looks lovely and will get some much needed cleaning as she sat under a tree for a few months and is very dirty

they are a very easy tune up, not like the lt1, everything is reachable
plus you have the standard style dist cap
on some of the carriage roof cars Ive seen, the fiberglass shell causes the roof to rust out under the shell,top of the windshield :bonkers:

looks like a nice ride, I like the pimp roof!

I have a 93 Im parting if you need anything

I didn't even think to go in through the wheel wells when I did my plugs - but it was a whole lot easier once I got on my back - some of the plugs are way easier from under the car than from the top.

Gorgeous car, at least it will be when you get the SS wheels on! Then the swaybars, then the springs, then the control arms, then the 4.56s, then the T-56, then the blower, then...

Stock Impala SS size, 255/50/17, is almost an inch shorter than the stock Fleetwood tire size. So I decided to go 245/55/17:

Haha, it's a whole lot easier if you just go 255/55/17! This size has almost exactaly the same OD as the factory tires, (28.0") and the speedo will not need to be reflashed. Without a LSD, these cars will just make mincemeat out of the back right tire anyhow, so wider is better.
