    Just got back from my ghetto shop again. This time I had a new alarm system put in. Schfancy looking remotes and such. Mine stopped working at all for some reason.

    Maybe it wants to be stolen so you can buy a rwd caddy.

    I can't say I disagree... If it gets stolen, I get a check from my insurance company and I get to buy a big-body Caddy. Ideally I want a 94-96 FWB, but I'm open to the older Broughams and Sedan DeVilles, and even the classics. I wouldn't turn down a 70's Eldorado. Screw MPG.

    All my cars have come with are the typical, normal things.

    The Pontiac came with very large Hornet's nest and another Pontiac's door in the trunk...
    The Mack came with two different Oldsmobile hubcaps and a Pontiac one...
    The Cadillac came with toe-tags...

    "When the gas runs out, just wreck it, you insured the thing."

    Good philosophy to have.

    Picked up a 4WD, ext cab, 5.4L, '98 F150...for FREE. Runs poorly, drives well. Best deal I've gotten, but God I still hate these trucks...

    Spent a few hours doing this and that. I don't know if I need to sand down the cone shapes for the cover bolts?

    I dig the lack of plastic. Makes it seem more, uh, car-y.

    on the car!

    I liked the center piece at first, just because a this engine seems just so.. boring or not flashy at all with the coil packs right over the covers and all the sensors everywhere. Then GM decided those cool looking fins on the inter cooler had to go and that killed everything.

    Now though, the plastic just looks even more Blah, and I've got VC's to show off.

    Picked up some stain for my center console. I'll start cleaning and staining it this week.

    Also talked to my body guy and he will be able to either notch my current crossmember or wled up the brace so the roadmaster dual exhaust crossmember can be used. Plus side is he's a few blocks away from my mechanic, so I won't have to go very far.

    ...now if only my transmission would get here...

    sigh

    ----------

    figured I'd post up pics of my caddy related junkyard gets




    the bad part- scrape from when it got dragged up on a tow truck (still not bad). the mounting bracket/ back plate for the bumper skin is actually still shiny chrome. I don't think that part of my bumper is still chrome.

    That's the thing I like about my DeVille. Sure, there's the beautay cover, but I can see engine. I like to see engine.

    thanks dave
    the bumper is for another forum member. I'm not 100% sure he'll want it (since it has the scuff on the bottom) but if not, I'll keep it as a spare. I think its slightly nicer than my bumper (scuff notwithstanding)
    the hood ornament is a spare for me, but if someone offered to buy it, I wouldn't hesitate to get rid of it.
    I plan on going back to the yard this week and raiding the rocker and door chrome for my FWB. some idiot managed to destroy the wheelwell chrome (tried to take it off without unscrewing rocker chrome and bent it :facepalm: )
