    Sam....It's not the butyl sealer between the glass and the pinch-weld around the opening where the glass is located that causes the leak. It is the sealer that GM used to seal the panels that come together underneath the parcel tray, the sail panel and the hinge mounts. I can't really say for sure because I am too big to get in there and take a look but since I am faced with sealing up my 81 car, I can get a small person to go in with a camera and snap some photos of the troublesome area if you would like.

    Cheers.........R.

    Re: 84 Coupe Deville Project

    So, I got some better pics about the seatbelt situation. The red circles show the mounting holes but you can see a 1 inch increase in the housing prevents it from sitting flat.


    The other side.


    Where can I mount it?????


    Got the last of the body mounts in today so I'm ready as soon as I can get someone over to help.


    Also got the quarter windows in tonight, went pretty smooth. Some trim is gone but the bodywork prevents it from going on. He put a lot of mud around the quarter windows and I had to do some drilling and mods just to get the windows in.

    I think thats an option in MN but the fuzz is so good at pulling people over that dont have that belt over the shoulder. I dont really ride dirty but I dont have insurance all the time.

    No judgement, but you need insurance. It's not for your car, it's for people. You will be ruined financially for the rest of your life if you are in an accident where someone is hurt or killed.

    1+ If you don't have insurance, you're risking everything you have or will have. It will be gone.

    Yea, I wait a little longer to take it off storage insurance then I should. It would just be annoying to get stopped every week for the same thing.

    Got it on last night. It actually lined up very well. I just jacked it up and kicked it over about a half inch after rolling it in and they all lined up. Wasnt expecting that.




    The bad news. My back has been giving me problems the last few weeks which include a trip to urgent care, then er, then ortho specialists and mri. Two compressed disc. Today I ended up on the garage floor for about 30 minutes. Meds arent doing anything. Next therapy isnt till thursday. Probably wont be touching the car for a few days.

    Re: 84 Coupe Deville Project

    Take it easy, my friend. I am dealing with the same issues. The MRI showed three herniated discs with tearing, and the nerves going to my left leg compressed. I couldn't move my toe for three months, and my foot felt like it was asleep. After much physio, I'm doing better. Serious meds didn't help me, either. I will be working smarter in the garage this year...

    Its too much for me. Its a life changer and I'm not willing to live like this. Limited movement, tingling feet, not being able to get dressed easily, doc saying it should get a little better...doesnt work for me. I was having a pretty good year on the basketball court and two of my kids are starting sports this year, I'd be devistated if I couldn't do what I've been doing. Saying "well, if you were a professional athlete, we'd do something more permanent".

    Re: 84 Coupe Deville Project

    Wow, sounds familiar. I was a b ball player, too, then coached high school for the past ten years. Don't worry, it WILL get better. It will take a couple of months for the discomfort to subside, though. I couldn't lie flat in bed, and I couldn't stand (try 15 second showers!). Regular chairs were a no-go. I discovered that a reclining style chair with a pillow under my knees gave me some relief. You need a good physio plan. They will show the exercises that will get your back and TA muscles strong again. I saw the best surgeon in my city. He's the team doctor for the Ottawa Senators. He told me he could go in, and trim the L5 disc to give me relief, but wanted to see how physio went. I'm glad he was patient.

    Crazy stuff, we'll see.

    I've almost got a complete black deville interior. Only missing rear armrests, quarter window interior trims, interior rear reading light panels and headliner. I have everything else in black in good condition with no rips including hard top interior rear window trim. Everything I dont have in black, I have in my light blue interior. The question is do I paint pieces from the complete blue interior to try to match black or do I put the blue interior in.

    Do you want black or blue, only you can answer that question.
