that rubber undercoating might not have been the best thing if there is rust already there. the undercoating traps moisture and promotes the rust

Do the rust converter products work? I thought the premise behind them was to cut off all air, thereby stopping the rusting process.

well, too late now, i just sprayed it on the one rust spot in the rear passenger wheel well, just as someone suggested might be there...at least no more water will get on it..i'm not too worried about it either way..

did you try locking and unlocking from both passenger and drivers side? Sometimes it is just the switch that goes bad. Not sure if the bonneville is this way, but some run off the drivers door switches and if that goes bad, the rest act funny.

Nice purchase though. Is it the same color as my red 93? if it is I have a picture of my RPO codes and I can get you the paint code from that.
no, i haven't tried that yet but will. I think the kid pry did as someone said and thought the black wire was naturally the ground wire and it wasn't..

the color has to be the same..if it'* not it'll have to get the job done because i dont know why GM would have 2 very close the same color red cars..but then again..who knows what GM is thinking sometimes...





I'm off to put new front and rear speakers in the ride as 1 or 2 are blown and it sounds like crap. Thanks again eerybody..

No problem; they're all over eBay. Programming instructions are in the TechInfo section; the car can learn a maximum of two transmitters, after which the oldest one rolls out of memory whenever a new one is programmed in.

---Rain has halted my progress of now, so far I spray painted some chips and stuff with red spray paint, removed the floormats and soaked them with Greased Lightning for a good pressure washing, fixed the weather stripping on the passenger rear door, and removed the rear passenger ghetto gold
Please can we retire the "ghetto gold" line? I've got the original-equipment gold wheels on mine, and (1) I think they look just fine -- good at hiding brake dust, too -- and (2) I've seen aftermarket "gold" wheels with those eight-zillion Allen screw heads around the rim, I'll concede those are trashy, but those aren't Pontiac.

I'll get to looking tonight, as I need just the plastic part of the remote for my other Bonneville anyway..

we/everyone else can, but we won't include me because I just started calling them that and it sounds right :P

No offense, but I really hope you're being sarcastic, if not, be sure to reply so I can have a good laugh before I go to bed..haha

Thankfully I don't have them, as they'd be almost as hard to clean as the "Original Equipment Manufacturer gold with silver-polished lip wheels" (ghetto gold is oh so much shorter lol)

Actually now that I think about it, the gold section is okay, but I do go nuts trying to keep the silver rims something resembling silver...

Yeah, I just comment on that because another guy I work for from TW Auto Sales always has me do his 93 SE and he has the silver web wheels. Makes me wax them nearly everyday. I never want to say anything but I think sometimes he'* lost it when he has me wax his car, wheels and all every day. same with his 94 Corvette...all..the..time. blah!

I'll definetly be cleaning the gold wheels up, probably using a toothbrush/pipecleaners to clean all the little "knicks and crannies." (I don't think I've ever actually used that phrase haha)
