no hurry . Just some thing for cover and protection . I use rubber mats over the carpet mats in the Lesabre then remove the them for the special outings.

FWIW guys.. it'll be quicker to pull it as full drivetrain. Then seperate it once it'* out since you have the master and all that stuff out of the way.

The only things that are a pain are those two motor mounts in the wheel wells. I find supporting the body, yank the times unbolt their main bolt in the wheel well, drop it all a bit and then unbolt (not studded, they are bolts) the mounts and the whole thing will lift right up and out.

If you are liking aluminum scrap prices. It would be worthwhile to grab the subframe, control arms and front/rear bumper supports.

Glad to see the Lumina was just the bad UIM like I hoped.
