I plan on making a set myself from what he learned and did. I have a few thoughts about changing up the DRL and need to look into the way the car does the security unlock flash. Flash to pass was easy, because the car doesn't flash the low beam for it. If the low beam is on during a flash, it stays on, if off it stays off. :Thumbs
Then these really cool and slightly dirty rims fell out fo the sky (close to Rob'* car. They were originally appropriated from the Rim King of Ohio. My efforts to get a decent set of chrome Regal rims was mostly a bust. No matter how decent the rims seem, they all peel and start losing air. That'* something I wasn't going to mess around with in the cold winter. Thanks again to Rob for some nice rims and all season tires with tons of tread.

Since last update I added a Viper 5901 remote starter/alarm with 1 mile range.

Did an axle on the driverside, then hopped into the interior. Pulled it into 1,000 pieces.

Cluster had a dimming DIC section. This is caused by bad resistors on the circuit board of the cluster. Replaced

The console was pulled and I added two side cigarette lighters from the Intrigue (wait til Max noticed his is missing ). I didn't care for how the factory side lighter has to be destroyed to pull out the console.

Added the passenger side heated seat pads and wiring.
Pulled the radio face off and soldered a USB cable onto it to add a rear USB. I contacted Pioneer about using one of the iPod controllers on their site via the IP Bus cabling that controls multiple items in the background. No go, nothing is compatible with my headunit except the USB cable I currently use and there'* no way to hook into the back as there is no USB back there. Sorry Pioneer, sorry warranty, the face was pulled off, and the USB wires from the cable were soldered onto the front face connection port. Saw someone do it on a forum when I was searching yesterday. Thumbs up to the guy for posting his idea. It works great.


Added the wire for the rear defogger to the HVAC system from the remote starter. I will be able to turn it on and melt snow on bad days from a mile away.

The interior went back together and the only thing for me to consider now is cleaning up the wiring behind the console at the floor. I left a bit of a mess.

Well the trans is on it'* way out, steering rack may be as well. Meanwhile I drive it anywhere I need to go and it keeps on chuggin.

New trans is in the basement waiting for me to finish building it. Looked into the ratios on racks and found the buick to have a slightly better ratio than GP from the info I was able to obtain.
