Still around after all these years

Hi all. Just wanted to say "HI" and tell you that I'm still alive and well...and still have my beloved wagon. https://apis.mail.yahoo.com/ws/v3/mailboxes/@.id==VjN-_S-5SbtzjjZ3vJRLX-27LA4yCTs4t0xez56w4voaUFPO8sRNmsMLnpYO70pcTDytOstHGQ2SvOzuBlPC52QM-g/messages/@.id==AN1YDS8tag9VWzedaAy50MVwcAM/conten...

Re: Wagon Rear Bumper Fillers?

I know it's been a few years, Scott. I came across this old thread and was wondering how you made out with your wagon redo. Hope you're still around and enjoying your ride. I repainted mine a few years back. I'll see if I can post a few pics. If you see this post and want to say "HI", that would be ...

Re: 79 MoreDoor SS

kewl_pics.gif That's definitely one of the cooler 4-dr Malibus that I've seen in awhile. Nice ride. Did it start life as an Iraqi cab? I know they were built in Canada. One of my buddy's up in Ontario owned a few. Actually Iraqi taxis were standard (3-spd) transmission cars.

Thank you, Chris, for all your hard work and keeping this site afloat. It's much appreciated. It obviously needed a new transfusion. =D>

I'm also a veteran member, although I haven't been on the site for quite some time. I'm still sad to hear about the site winding down. This was the first site that I was a member on.

Re: 79 door glass channel guide availibility??

Check with Danno Enterprises. You can find most of the replacement run channels except for the front door upright pieces. They're a peculiar shape...OEM only. I was lucky to find one NOS channel for the left side, the right channel had to be pieced together.

Re: 1978-80 cutlass cruiser header panel on 1982 cutlass cru

Tommy,
He's looking to put a dual headlight header panel on a quad headlight car. So he should have no problem bolting on the dual headlight header panel. No modification necessary.

Re: What body mods would you do to your car (if any)?

Chris, I will probably consider the stainless product instead of chrome paint. It looks like cool stuff, but I also heard that it ain't cheap. The Thomas' stuff is a lot more cost effective, plus if I do f@#@ it up, I can probably scuff it up and go over it again. Now you got me thinking whether we ...

Re: What body mods would you do to your car (if any)?

Thanks Chris, I wouldn't be opposed to using a few aerosols. The bumpers are primed with 2K urethane. They've been sanded with a DA using 80 grit paper, etch primed for tooth...no sealer yet. It sounds like a pretty cool product to me. You also mentioned Spectra Chrome. Is that the chrome paint that...

Re: What body mods would you do to your car (if any)?

Hey, thank you Chris. That looks like some interesting stuff. Have you ever used it before, or know someone that has? It looks like that might achieve the look that I'm after. I've never heard of that product before until now. A pint of base, and a pint of clearcoat should be more than enough to do ...

Re: What body mods would you do to your car (if any)?

Thanks Chris, I was possibly thinking about a muted silver, or platinum/ champagne color for the bumpers. I would like a brushed stainless look, but unless I can achieve the look with paint, it ain't happening. I thought if the silver/ platinum/ champagne color is too shiny, I can shoot some matt fi...

Re: What body mods would you do to your car (if any)?

Hi Brian, Yes, the car now has an '81 header panel on it. I opted for a change of pace. I still have the '79 header panel. I think it will become garage art...or I'll sell it. I'm trying to picture the '69-'72 GP door handles. :-k I'll do a search on the web. Have you found another car? I think you ...
