    ^^ Don't think it will work if factory air is to be restored to the stock location. Now if that ww motor will somehow hook up with the Cad linkage and can be adapted to the Cad ww motor location it might be worth a try.

    Gonna be the last I touch the car for a while. 90 header panel with 80s everything else. Cutting the 90 fillers was easy, just cut them even with the header.

    1980coupe and 1980coupe like this.

    Jay, did you remove a post on here about a motor being parted out? What kind of motor was it?

    No, haven't moved/deleted anything. I see that MrHolland deleted a post, though. The picture had a virus embeded in it.

    Are you keeping the stock 80s bumper strips? I have a pair of 90s headlight fillers cut and custom made to the 80s header...mine were cut in 3 pieces then grafted together so it can look like it supposed to if it were on a 90s header...
    Cause if you look at yours, where it's cut, you can see inside it..right? I'll PM you pics of mine so I won't invade your thread with my pics...
    It's looking good...

    I havent put the filler on but I dont think it'll look that bad. If they do, I'll grab yours since I still have to paint the drivers front side filler. I cut them even with the header and then cut the parts off inside the filler that prevents then from having that gap but I only dry fit it so we'll see. You got the hookup on a lot of stuff. Actually, I should grab the fillers from you anyway, I'll probably PM you on thursday. Can you get the hood center trim?

    Lol, yeah I have lots of goodies..I can get you the center hood trim, i believe there's an 84 in the yard and it does have center trim that I know of for that specific year..my fillers overlap a bit to the fenders now that I recall. You'll see in the pics once I get home and on my computer...

    Those 90's headlights look pretty good with the 80s bumper.

    Re: 84 Coupe Deville Project

    You know, you could have used your existing 80s fender. Just cut them along where the filler would have gone and rolled them in to give it a lip and a mounting place for the fillers...some on layitlow have done that and you dont need the whole 90s bumper just the sides and the front small bumper guards as well or you could have kept those the way they are...when I did mine, I went your route as well but wanted the front impact strips as well, as you saw on the picture I sent you....
    So whats next....

    I dont know if I replied to your pm but you can post pics here cause I couldnt see them in my pm. It said the forum was having issues displaying them or something. Gotta take a break for a few weeks, had back surgery yesterday.

    Re: 84 Coupe Deville Project

    Yes you did replied. Hope you get better.
    The rockers are yours when you're ready, dude on layitlow just keeps giving me excuses...
    First, he'll get his friend for paypal, no go
    Next, his boss for paypal, no go
    Third, set up a new paypal but didnt have account info
    Finally, got in a car wreck and had surgery on his arm. Makes me wonder, if that's the case how did he reply with use of one arm?
    Whether true or not, oh well there yours.
    Maybe the forum was experiencing technical difficulties. If it's cool with you, I'll post pics here or send to your email..
    Wishing you a speedy recovery

    Just my two-cents... The 90s bumpers are a sin. Sure if you leave it half and half you'll have a Frankencoupe, but it'll look nicer. Isn't that what matters?
