Default New Member with my first Bonneville

I've always wanted a Bonneville and I finally got one. It'* not much right now, but I hope to spend some time gettin it all fixed up.

It'* a '96 SE sedan.

I've already had to disconnect the DRL module so the lights don't stay on after the car is shut off. Also had to clean up some corrosion under the coil pack module so it stays runnin.

Other than that it seems to be workin pretty good so far.

Thanks for the great welcome gang.

I'll get some pics posted soon, but I warn you, they're nothing special yet. There'* a few rust spots and the rims aren't in great shape.

The wife thinks I bought it just as a winter beater. But I've always wanted a Bonne, so I'll sneak a few fixes in here and there and before she knows it, Ill have it back in showroom condition (with a few extras I hope).

Well, I think my first priority will be getting some good sounds happening. The factory tunes sound kinda tired so I'll mosey over to the Audio forums and see if i can find out what fits, etc.

See you there...

H
