The engine bay has me drooling.

Awesome looking car. My grandparents have a red limited edition 2005 LeSabre. Wish theirs looked like this. My grandpa kept trying to talk me into a Buick but he was also happy that I got a Bonneville since its pretty much the same.

Label is still present in the last one.



I have no idea why my camera makes everything look so orange.

Install pics. My camera has the unique quality of being able to focus on everything and nothing all at once, and being able to put more light where there is already too much and take it away from places that need more. Thus, these pictures don't really show the throttle body that well. But it is nice and shiny. I clear coated it yesterday.

All total about 24 hours spent removing, disassembling, polishing, clear coating, reassembling, and reinstalling the throttle body.

OK, I was going to post pics of my 97 Lesabre. Yours has put mine to shame and I'd be too embarrassed to show pictures of the small scratches in the paint, dirty interior, filthy engine bay. Having 2 kids at home plus two cars to maintain, certain things get put off for awhile. My Mercury hasn't been washed or waxed properly in about 2 years.

Curious about the lighting. If GMs have good lighting, that means that others must be really pathetic. The lighting in my Mercury Grand Marquis beats my Lesabre hands down. It has a central light, front reading lights, and rear reading lights.

Haha thanks man. Mine does too, actually. Well except for the central lighting part. It has lights on the front and rear doors, lights in the footwells, front reading lights, and rear reading lights. Maybe they had different levels of illumination in them, I'm not sure.

My truck is pretty decent too, for just being an extended cab. Two reading lights, footwells, and a central. Not to mention the six white LED'* I added to the console.

Really though, I was referencing my old Honda which had one central light. It sucked!
