    Sam,

    WOW! car looks great with the interior in it again. The color of your car is #22 which Cadillac officially called "Balboa Blue."

    Can you use the 90 power seat with the 84? If you do, can you add the power recliner from the 90 too? The power seat on my 79 is malfunctioning and I would love to put in a 90-92 power seat motor with the power recliner, could it work with my existing seat which does not currently recline? I would love to do this, could the door panel switches be changed around too?

    Glad you're having so much fun with your car!

    Dave

    I have the 90 base on the driver side. The harness plugs into the 90 control but I've only got up and down so I guess its not gonna work. The power recliner motor and stuff is inside the bottom cushion so you wont be able to put power recline in yours without serious mods. I've got it all together and have been driving it for a few days now. The cars is so much better than the 90. It sounds better, drives better and there's a lot less rattling inside the car.

    Couple pics of the finished install. Next big moves will be to remove the top and paint, replace all rear fillers, find an aluminum hood and find a nice looking set of rims.

    I'm not sure about the exact length but it fits with no problems. I even had 255/50/17s on it and they fit just fine. Bubble caprice cop cars and bubble Impalas got disc.

    I honestly dont think I'm gonna find any rims that look better then whats on there. What I really need is perfomance tires and I cant find anything in the correct size for these rims. I will say that these BFGoodrich's have treated me very well.

    Sam, I tried a 1990 seat in my 86 (had to test it prior to selling it) and the base functioned (although down was up or front was back- something like that) because a couple of the wires were switched in the harness. power recline (at least on the 90 I got the seat from) had its own 2 prong plug separate from the main seat base plug.

    Yea, I think the wiring changed in 86 or 87 to where they just plug and play correctly. I've had seats from an 88 in the 90 and they moved correctly. I don't know, if itwas easy to get things through the door, id just put the wiring for the 90 seats in the 84...along with the power mirrors.

    Just saw this gauge setup on a beautiful 79 with a 500 swapped in. Y'all like this setup? Think I'm gonna do the same. They are 1.5"

    Re: 84 Coupe Deville Project

    As soon as I saw it, I started looking for square gauges. I might get them with the chrome bezel if I can.

    There is a manufacturer that makes gauges in different shapes for the customs and rods to make them look more classic.
