    Of course the eggcrate grille is the best. It is traditional Cadillac. Why would I want my Cadillac to look like a Rolls Royce?

    Our definition of "cool" may differ.

    Re: 84 Coupe Deville Project

    Havent been doing much, just working on the seats and center console. The center console is still in cardboard stages but pretty basic. I want it to fit in with the dashboard. Slanting down from the ashtray, running low till you get to the armrest which is pretty far back. Gonna wrap it in black vinyl but I want to use some woodgrain off a couple glove box doors on the face of it somehow. Soooo, anybody got a couple glove box doors from the 84 era they dont need?

    Welded a flat piece across the front and back.



    Then welded some 2x3" spacers onto the back flat bar to level it and drilled through the floor. Gonna put some anchors under the car so the bolts dont rip out.

    Got the seats mounted and the center console mocked up. Console is 6.5" wide.


    Here's the rough cut of the center console, 48" long.


    This is what I had to do to the seats. Weld a bar across and then some spacers to reach the floor pan.


    My friend gave me some pointers on welding and I've got a lot better.



    I just hope this setup looks good cause I'll take it out if it doesn't.

    Re: 84 Coupe Deville Project

    Your seats look like they were made for the car. Also looks like the risers you made to adapt them to the car will work just fine. Centre console should finish it off nicely. Floor shifter on the cards? Will the seats roll forward enough to allow easy entry to the back seat area?? Nice work Sam!

    Cheers........R

    Thanks a lot. The seats do move foward quite a bit for very easy access. A floor shifter is in the plans as well as a hydraulic ebrake if I can find one that fits the car.

    Before you put too much time into that console, look for one from a 90s Buick Riviera. The front edge can be trimmed to perfectly fit the bottom of the dash/ashtray area, and it will look factory. I just sold a maroon one.
