    Got the doors on...
    They line up good but the passenger side door is messed up, the window frame is bent. Kinda like it was dropped on the window frame while being set down. And the paint doesnt match but I'll post more on that on my paint thread when I get the car together
    Upsetting...window probably wont go in without some bending, twisting and banging and theres a big difference in the paint...






    ----------

    What about these seats from a Seville? Solves the seatbelt problem and opens up room for a center console.

    Re: 84 Coupe Deville Project

    How you searched that? Imma take a look...cant tell window frame is bent...at least not on my phone...was it difficult to adjust the door?
    My driver side door was replaced and at the hinges its a lil lower and you can see the window frame on the inside of car and you're not supposed to. It closes and opens ok but it doesnt line up, a lil off...

    ----------

    Are you going to install the Fleetwood coupe rockers, since it has the clips already on there or you gonna smooth them out and use the regular
    coupe rockers?
    I have the coupe rockers off my 80 coupe, don't need them since I installed the Fleetwood coupe rockers..

    The corner of window frame is pushed in and towards the front of the car. I think I can fix it though. Not sure what I'm gonna do about the rockers, the ones off the blue car are messed up. I dont have plans to put the 90-92 panels on but I did put the 90 front header panel on.

    For the plastic fix, look up plastic welding.

    Re: 84 Coupe Deville Project

    cool. By the way those seats would look awesome in the coupe and with a center console...does solve your seatbelt problem. Have you done a mock up? What about the rear? Same seats off of the Seville or from the coupe?
    The rockers I have are in good shape even though they are 33 years old...two small nicks towards the bottom on either side but not noticeable since it's down low (2nd picture)..here's a few pics...there's a guy on layitlow that is interested but keeps delaying and making excuses...so first come, first serve


    top one, that's not a ding on picture it shows up but when I saw the rocker and felt it, there's nothing there??

    Can't tell there's a difference in color, in regards to the color of car

    I havent bought the seats yet, he wants 175, maybe payday. The paint is different as far as the finish. Mine is dry, the shell was sprayed nice and wet, the reflection is totally different. I'll be posting on my paint thread soon, maybe tomorrow night. Rockers look good, it would be a while but I'd be interested eventually. Money's tight, gotta find a way to get these seats or hit the yard for some.

    Sam, how are your armrests? I found a set of really nice crack/ split free white ones (maybe you could dye/ paint them) with the chrome trim on them in a 2 door park avenue (same as FWB or deville). Also got a dent free sill plate from it (going up on the parts for sale thread in a couple days)

    My armrest and door sills are good because of all the parts the guy gave me. He gave me 5 or 6 extra door panels so im bound to have something useful. Thanks for looking out for me though.

    Re: 84 Coupe Deville Project

    Sam, didn't you run the 500 in your original 84 car? With that wiper assembly in it and working??. Or are those covers different from those which you ran in the blue car? Back to tin covers with a clipped corner on the left side?

    Cheers.......R.

    These are new and the old tin covers dont fit over the new valvetrain. Maybe I could rotate the wiper motor and drill new holes in the mount, maybe find a different assembly.

    How about trying the later style one? Looks like it will give more clearance. No idea if it will work...
