Default That'* my car! :)

Very nice. I have an 88 SEE that we have owned since Sep of 87. In 1991, GM had a recall on the clear coat going bad on black cars and ours was repainted even though it was burgundy. Mine’* in very good shape except for the headliner sagging in the back, DIC is out (like everyone else!) and someone did a hit and run on the rear bumper cover. Really sad when I saw it and now saving up money to get it repaired. Mine is identical to yours but it has cloth interior.

Thanks for your comments.
Regarding the "sagging" of your headliner fabric. it is possible to reglue-it with a good result.
I guess that your sunroof have or had a leak problem.
If this is the case, the leak must be fix at first, then the headliner/
sun shade panel can be replaced or reglued if the tissue is still
in good condition...otherwise it will be a waiste of time and money.
regading the DIC, if you know how to use a ohms meter then there are alot of testing that can be done to
determine if it is still good...you need thow the Bonneville repair manual instructions or ask for the trouble shooting instructions in this site.
ciao!
