Default Mom'* L27

Here'* a pic of Mom'* L27 (93 Buick LeSabre Limited) after I got done with it. Cleaned it up for sale. She ended up getting HIGH retail (rated excellent) from a guy that chased her down on the freeway when he saw the sign in the window.



She is now the proud owner of a 2004 Buick LeSabre with the L36. I haven't seen that one yet.

Did you use simple green on that? How many miles? I'm thinking of going all out in spring for cleaning mine. I got my yellow wire loom this weekend as well...

I was in Cali, so I didn't have my usual stuff handy. She had a gallon of the concentrated Kirkland (Costco house brand) degreaser. Looks EXACTLY like green antifreeze. 50/50 (way too strong) mix, and an old paintbrush. Then put some in a bottle at the same mix, sprayed the whole thing down, and rinsed 10 minutes later.

Low-gloss armor-all on the rubber/plastic components. 30 minute job. 126k miles, and a long dirt road.
