    Re: CadillacPimpinNOLA's 95 Fleetwood buildup 56K your computer will blow up

    yeah, and blue isn't the most common interior color either (esp for cars with the woodgrain option... eldo/sev)

    i'm not even sure if that option was ever actually offered in the blue interior too... so i'm not really looking all that hard

    but a boy can dream

    I've come across quite a few of the wood wheels in black interiors....haven't seen them in white or blue yet.

    i have seen a lot in black leather and dark wood grain, a few in tan like the one i got, thats really the only two colors i have seen but it was an option for any color those year eldorados...but all the previous ones ive found the leather was worn, worn grain chipped or showing age and a $350+ price tag...

    i think there is relief cuts in the wheel,but i dont think that you would be able to see them too much. also the airbag attaches differently on the fleetwoods and eldorados, do you know if you can just pull off the part from the flletwood wheel and add it to the eldorado?

    from what i read it was the same exact wheel so the airbag should swap right over, if not ill figure it out and make it work

    Re: CadillacPimpinNOLA's 95 Fleetwood buildup 56K your computer will blow up

    line driver came in faster than expected, got it yesterday instead of the april 2 delivery date, so thats a win, went out and pulled the driver seat, squeezed in the back seat area and wired it up, that and the dual USB hookup were the last two pieces I had left so everything for the tablet is done, i havent set the gain on the line driver but did test it and its 100...so now its on to the console when i have some spare time.



    USB hanging there cuz the ashtray was cut up for the switches, all will be hidden

    Re: CadillacPimpinNOLA's 95 Fleetwood buildup 56K your computer will blow up

    ok, wheel came in today, pulled the factory one

    96LT1 those pieces you talking about, i was able to unscrew them from my factory wheel, on the new wheel the opening on the back of the wheel has a restriction made into and uses small and shorter screws, maybe tomorrow im going to grind the heads of the screws down so they fit in there and be able to mount the airbag when im ready

    I have to dye the airbag to match the wheel leather and then water transfer the wood with a burlwood pattern and it will be done

    Re: CadillacPimpinNOLA's 95 Fleetwood buildup 56K your computer will blow up

    thanks, i ground the bolt heads down this morning at work, the bolt head fits now but one last small, minor issue, the bolts have a threaded end and the middle is smooth but larger in diameter, im going to have to enlarge the 4 holes on the wheel so they can pass through, doesnt have to go much and theres plenty to drill.

    about to go get a price on the water transfer in a lil while also

    Re: CadillacPimpinNOLA's 95 Fleetwood buildup 56K your computer will blow up

    got the pieces installed in the wheel, trying to find some color to do the airbag and ran into another issue

    I guess i have 4 choices now since the guy who does water transfer is obviously on a generic system. he says his burlwood is red and wont match mine. im pretty sure you print what you want and lay it on so he must have preinstalled images and dont want to upgrade or go outside the box

    so my 4 choices are...leave it as is with mismatched wood...do all the wood in the car...paint it to match my car...search for someone else

    Given the amount of work you've put in to this car already, I vote for re-doing all the wood in the car. With real veneer.. It's on my "one day" list of things to do..
