That'* great news. I'm glad I remembered a little about the senders and hopefully that was able to save you a couple minutes.

Wow! The project is really making quick progress! I definitely will have to make a trip up to Moorhead/Fargo to check this out sometime after Christmas (when I finally have a day off from working besides Thanksgiving and Christmas) because I work every day (weekends included) until then).

I also did this (1998 Camel door panels as well as the seats) in my old 1995 Bonneville SLE SC.

Those are fantastic! The problem is, I need to work on my DS front door innards before I put on the door panel. If there aren't any pictures to be had on this thread, that'* fine. I understand work gets rushed, and it'* probably no biggie anyway. Does anyone know off hand where I could find this on Alldata?

what do you need to see? My 97 has no door panels so I could help you out.

sorry I didn't take more pictures, but it is kind of time consuming for my to take pictures after I do every little thing. Plus my camera is turnign into a pile of crap and only works when it wants to.

Oh, great! No pressure or anything. I need to see where the bolts and nuts go that hold the giant metal plate and the path for the power window. I've kind of lost the "touch" of where to attach the giant metal piece with brushes all along the inside, bolt-wise, and how it bolts up to the metal piece when it'* all put together. There is some complicated back-alleyed reason for why I am at this point, but it'* very weird. I don't really need a whole lot of pictures, but just something to get the general idea of how things go. That would be really, really helpful. Thanks a lot!

did some cleaning yesterday and today.

My 97 Shell is all stripped and was time to get it out of the garage. There was very little laft of it when I was done.

Then I spent the day getting everyhtign ready for winter, because it won't be long until the snow stays on the ground.

Whats left of the 97, I'll let it sit in the back yard for a year or 2 and after I get sick of it it'll get crushed.

Dude, that'* awesome! Thank you so much for the picture of the door. That'll hopefully do me a lot of good. Great back yard!

I don't mind LeBarons. I got one that was a 94 with all leather, all power, and a convertible. The problem was that its transmission had gone the way of the Chrysler. It was free, and I got a lot of time to work on it. It sold on eBay for a whole lot, too.

My Bonneville is done, in a sense. The swap is complete, air suspension works, performance suspension works, ABS works, Airbag module reset. On the interior its like your sitting in a 96-99, much nicer than the 93 interior.

Took it for a 30 mile drive tonight, its runs perfect, sifts perfect, more power than I was expecting, and very comfy. I hadn't really driven on of these before. This was my wife'* and I only drove it a couple times, but it was a pile of **** then and the supercharger didn't work so this was my first time driving a boosted bonneville.

I need to get a alignment Monday and its ready to drive daily.

I also got a check from the insurance company today, we had some hail, like 6 weeks ago and it had a few good hits, I filed a claim and did all the stuff and then it was over a month until I finally heard something and it was a check for $1300.

So I am going to paint the car then. I have all the rocker trim and bemper covers from the 97 and plan on putitng them on the 93 and want to repaint the whole car a new color.

I kinda like the 97 SLE anniversary purple color. Anyone know the color code for that color?

Mike
