    Alright thanks. I have the wrong bolts in, they tighten down but wiggled going in. Not sure how I missed that the first time. Probably have the standard size that is close to correct metric size.

    Re: 84 Coupe Deville Project

    Just storing some info on the thread.
    Springs Installed 110#
    .550 open 230#

    I will say that I am working on a custom floor shifter setup that fits decently with the interior. Hopefully make some progress tonight.

    Great project! Did you install Caprice headlights? They look great with the stock front!

    Thanks. I didnt install the Caprice headlights because I put the euro front clip on but it would be a project for a quad headlight setup.

    You still need the center hood trim and piece of trim for the top of the windshield?

    Just the center trim now. I grabbed one off an Olds eighty eight but it is different.

    Re: 84 Coupe Deville Project

    like those seats look in your car. I always thought I`d like to get some Impala SS wheels but for a few months now I am thinking more about the same Fleetwood mags that you have. I don`t know why but they look more stylish on it.
    I also have to do the roof on my car and after seeing yours and a few others I am wondering i I shouldn`t remove the vinyl roof completely. But it will probably be even more expensive since it has to be nicely painted

    I'd definitely suggest the hard top. The impala rims look decent but the stock impala tires are a little too bulky. I'm gonna go to 225/50/17s so I can get to the stock diameter tire size. Can't beat the 93-96 Fleetwood rims. I'd love to get some chrome Fleetwood rims though.

    And that's about the best I can get. A working floor shifter with correct gear indication and working cup/change holder. Looks pretty decent in person too. Shifter is a little high but I can't get it lower.

    Thanks. I dont think its that bad either, especially for my first time. Almost looks like a stock interior of a sport coupe or something.

    Can you get easy access to the back seat? I recall that those seats didn't originally have tilt backrests. Or is this now "Seats 2.2"??

    Cheers.......R.

    I really like the interior. With that console, and mostly the console makes me think of a 70`s german car (Porsche or something). I think it`s the soberness and black colour, but I think it looks great.

    No easy access to the back seat. My kids can get in pretty easy but a skinny adult will have to be creative, bigger people just cant ride in the back. I got back there once...that was an experience. I think its safe to say its a two seater.
