Default Mod Sickness sets in: Coil swap on my 90 Bonneville

Ok, I must be sick or something. It'* 91 degrees here in Central Florida and instead of relaxing with a cool libation after a long day at work, I spend an hour hunched over the still hot engine bay of the Bonneville. Why? Cause a friggin box shows up in the mail with a set of Delco coils in it. I think I need therapy.

Here'* what they look like, now that they are installed in place of the Magnavox coils:



Also noticed that one, possibly two, trim pannels are missing from above the passenger side headlight and radiator support (I think)... more junkyarding in my future.

There were no trim pannels on the 88-91 LE SE bonnevilles in that area... The SSE'* had them tho I think... I may have to check that later...

Now being that you are in central FL, you need one of these...


Extremely tight fit....

Your'* would be the first I have seen with all of them, except the SSE'*

Is you LE base or totally loaded?

It'* loaded, man
It doesn't have the air assist rear suspension, or buckets. But it has convenience stuff like the buttons on the steering wheel, climate control, and firm ride springs and 16 inch alloys. Probably half way loaded.

You guys are talking about the center one around the hood latch, right?

The more I look at the car, the more I am convincend there was one above the passenger side headlamp...just becuse there'* one on the driver side and it looks like it was just ommitted when they were replacing the fender (note the hand written headlight aiming notes on the black radiator tag)

Also, would those trim panels be unique to the Bonneville, or are they more or less common to H-Body cars. (Forgive my ignorance, I'm so used to dealing with F-Bodies where there'* kinda of a zone where parts are less Camaro or Firebird and more like "Camabird" common parts...I imagine the same holds true for the Bonneville and her siblings, I just don't know where the common parts end and the model specific ones begin)
