    Sting - No, that's the engine hoist that's too small. It's my dad's friend's. It is orange, though.

    Outsider - I'd really appreciate that pic if you can remember it. Thanks!

    Re: 1984 Coupe DeVille Engine Swap!

    photos are uploading right now. Hopefully they're decent quality. It's kinda cloudy out and I took them using my work blackberry. Also hard to get too good of a pic with the car all put together

    Hey Matt, I couldnt get a good pic of the mounts but heres an ebay link to the ones that will work.
    http://motors.shop.ebay.com/i.html?_...506.m270.l1313

    Also, heres a pic of the bare brackets. But, on Outsider's second pic, there is a third piece that goes in the front and a spacer that goes between the compressor and rear bracket. You can see them both on his second pic

    Re: 1984 Coupe DeVille Engine Swap!

    Thanks for the pictures and help Outsider and CS!

    And CS, those mounts look great. Will they bolt to these? They are the frame mounts for a 1984 Cadillac Diesel. They look like the engine ones go over them with a bolt that goes through. I'll head to advance if so tomorrow.

    Frame-Mount:


    Also, this is all I had before you guys chimed in about the AC brackets:


    You may remember that I said my TV Cable Adapter wouldn't clear my EGR Socket/Block-Off Plate. I found another carb spacer at the local speed-shop the other day. I put on the two spacers and a new gasket, bolted the carb on top, and viola! The adapter now clears the EGR Plate! Woo!

    My double spacers with my adapter NOT hitting the EGR Plate:


    Lastly for today (tonight?), I have been doing some painting. I broke out the rattle-can of Semi-Gloss Black before work today and went to town on my engine bay. The firewall didn't get painted because I ran out of paint, but all the rest of it got hosed down pretty well.

    These old sheets and towels came in VERY handy:


    Sorry about the glare, the sun was right behind me. For just a quick spray-job, I don't think it turned out too bad. It certainly looks better than the color of surface rust.

    What do orange hearses have to do with T-pain? I'm terrified.


    I saw today while taking my sister to work an ORANGE '57 Nomad. It was pretty much sex on wheels, but we were traveling at like 65 in traffic through the city, so snapping a pic wasn't an option. I still pulled along side and gave him the biggest and longest thumbs up ever.

    Re: 1984 Coupe DeVille Engine Swap!

    I get Thumbs-upped all the time by stupid tourists or stupid locals who think my car is cool. Wish I had a button that camouflaged it as a (cue the dramatic music) PRIUS...that would also be the best antitheft system ever. I prefer giving peoples Horns signs when I like their cars, as thumbs-ups are not my style, much like repenting on my knees. Better than the Horns Sign is the Klaxon Horn, as when you use that on the muscle car you like, the driver gives YOU a thumbs-up.

    TO remain partly on-topic, Matt...You have earned a series of Horns Signs and AH-OOG-AH's...

    As for the Orange Hearses...

    Well, Jay Leno says there are two types of people, those who drive Hearses and those who can't afford to. In a way it is true, as it is a joke about the inbound expenses purchasing a hearse will compile. I have also heard Hearses described as

    "Hellish bitch goddesses that are only truly happy when every ounce of your soul and money have been put forward for their own well being. If you get a hearse, KNOW that it will only be truly content once you have spent endless hours loving it, working on it, and spending every last dime you have to your name on it! No, do not even put a little cash aside to buy food to keep yourself nourished, because I swear the car will know! It will sense that you have not given it all that there is to your name, and it will develop ANOTHER major mechanical problem"

    And after comments like this and the fact that rappers always drive around in fancy cars simply to show off that they can afford them (stretch H2 anyone?) that man with the robot voice decided he had to have a TRAFFIC-CONE ORANGE Hearse with a baby blue landau. I don't know if he ever named the car, but I'd have just called it Eye Rape.

    I hear those are 26" wheels, but they look no bigger than my 20" ones did.
