Default FINALLY

My site is being uploaded tonight but it is far from finished . That said "Cough" "Cough" August "Cough" I am a perfectionest so my Isp provider had to force me to put this up. If he hadent i dont think my site would have ever seen the light of day. LOL

So criticicums are understood, and remember i know the site is very much under construction. the header is also a mess but il fix it a bit this weekend.

Click on buick to get an idea of how the site will look. you know the general feel.

I was looking for a feel that even the older person would feel comfortable with, I will have quite a few portals and different versions and even a Bonneville/ h body only store. The other stores will give me a chance to put different flavors on the store. Thank you for the support. I am very interested in what people like or want in a store and products you want.

This main original store is having problems so the posting of new products will be delayed. The delay is more of a shopping cart/programming issue than anything else. I am using the agora cart so it should be finished soon. I figure by the end of the month the format will include the fixed cart with the ability to use all type of credit cards or even cheques/checks. I will also be building a few other stores but this will have to do for now.

Thank you for the support. I do already have quite a few other options including high-grade alternators. As I said I would be offering the H body and Cadillac options first then the rest of the store will fill out. Also I am looking into coilover suspension options that are cheaper but maintaining quality. I will keep you posted and any interest in a product drop me a line so we can see if anyone else shares your interest or need.

Speedguy,

I just checked out your site again. It is comming along great! I am interested in knowing the number of interested '92-99 Bonneville owners there are for the A piller guage pods? I am interested but I will need to know how close we are to ordering before I can commit. I am also interested in finding a source for a boost guage and oil temp guage that would fit the above mentioned pod. Any direction in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

I am also wondering what excactly is the difference between my 4T60-E HD tranny and the one you offer (aside from the availability of the limited slip diff). Are there any shift kits for our transmissions? I would love to have a very hard shift in my car. I am currently running a stock setup on everything, but would like to start some mods with trans comming first.

To anyone else who can help me, I was wondering where the boost guage will plug into my engine at. As my car is a VIN # 1 with a series I from the factory but came in an SE or SLE (leather) trim, it did not come with the boost guage.

Tim

Yes there are actual gauges that I will offer but I have yet to here from the pod makers on a price for the pillar pods. I called today so I will hear from them tomorrow. They will also tell me the size of the pods offered so I can then tell you exactly what each gauge will cost. As for in lining the gauges I have not even crossed this path but I am sure I can get that info for you once I know exactly what kind of gauge they will offer. I figure from this sites interest I have about 10-12 people interested. I need about 20 people I will advertise all over the place once I get the price and options down so I can get this produced for us. Don’t worry soon as I know you will know. I will update you on every thing that happens as soon as I know about it. Often before it’* even on the site. Also this is all about the person who is a Bonneville enthusiast so share your ideas and I will try and make them happen.

4t60-e and the HD version are very similar except for the side panel. The obvious difference is the internal strength. The limited slip is waiting for the guy who makes them to get back to me. grrrr. The 4t60-e or 4t60-e HD does not have a similar system to the 4t65-e so they cannot use the same type of shift kit. We do have a shift kit option. I am investigating offering this separate from the transaxle and it could be made to shift very hard, medium hard to regular but once set it is fairly permanent. I will be experimenting soon. I know this will help to lengthen the life of our poor 4t60-e. Once again I am waiting on more info on the limited slip. Because these are very specialty items it does take a longer time to set up products and product information. I am sorry I cannot get the performance transaxle any cheaper but our cars tend to be a niche within a niche within a niche. The store portion of the site will change drastically in the next little while and I will have a separate link to a e-bay store for those who want to use paypal.

P.*. I am looking for good photos of Bonneville’* Buick’* and Cadillac’*.

I stole your front pic, but if you would prefer another one I will be glad to put up another. I am also interested in a newer 2000-2003 Bonneville picture.
