    Right now just shined up her rims and tires (shine gel), gave her a Meguiar's quick wax treatment, and her windows a rain-x treatment too.


    I make love to my Caddy by cleaning and detailing her :-)

    Promised to mate the transmission back on the engine but did not do any work due to massive projects they had to assign over the thanksgiving break. Also weather didn't help.... Gloomy Saturdays and cold Sundays are the most unproductive days ever.

    A centre console would get in the way of my radio and I need that for work. Plus, I sometimes make use of the middle seat, except for that time in WPB...

    It's actually supposed to stay dry for a few days, so my poor, filthy Seville will get a trip through the car wash on my way home tonight:

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    Just spoke to my sister in North Dakota, and I have good news and better news.

    The good news is her mechanic finally pinned down the root cause of Cruella's problem — the throttle position sensor. Between that, the leaking fuel injector and the timing being way off, it's a wonder the engine ran at all. He's ordered the part (fortunately, it's ~$50 at NAPA) and will put that in, plus the new muffler, tomorrow. I hope this will be the last we have to spend on the car for a little while.

    And the even better news is that the Service Manager at the dealership in Grand Forks made things right and refunded the $102 diagnostic charge. He agreed that the technician did not go deep enough into the cause of the problem when they had the car back in October. And she's already gotten the refund check. I'm pleasantly surprised.

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    Washed and hand dried the Regal after work tonight, it's got an appointment for an oil change and tire rotation on Thursday. I might do a coolant flush as well, as I don't think that's ever been done. Last I checked, the coolant still had a good PH level, but it's better safe than sorry.

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    Sadly, today I cleaned out the rest of our personal belongings from the wrecked '95 Seville STS.

    Boo hoo !

    (My wife had cleaned out most of the stuff the other day, but she missed the floor mats, a road atlas and my tire pressure gauge. The floor mats are black, OEM, carpeted and barely worn. The carpet of our replacement 06 STS is also black, so these may be some use. I haven't tried the fit yet, but I'm sure at least the rear mats and the trunk mat will fit.)

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    Replaced the driver door Bose assembly.

    Followed my AllData exactly as instructed and it came off smoothly



    Looks like my clips have been repaired in the past, not sure what to think of this "job" but they look a durable, the more i work on this car the more im finding things the previous owner(s) had done.





    Panel went back on smoothly, forgot to take a pic of the completed job :P

    ELWOOD is tucked in for the winter. Washed, waxed, filled tank, garaged, covered, tendered. I'm already feeling depressed.

    I'm trying to resist mod hell this winter, but I know I'm going to give in as soon as a warm day comes around.
