  1. Also, if anyone is interested in a throttle body off of a 3.3 motor (52 mm opening rather than 48 mm, bolts right on), let me know. Happy to sell that too.
  2. Been pulling all sorts of trim pieces of the TC's, most of it is in excellent shape. If anyone is looking for anything, let me know. I'm willing to ship if buyer pays shipping.
  3. One 90, one "91." 90 is white, tan interior, and 91 is red, tan interior. Have hardtops for both. I was selling these earlier but when no one would offer even $2,000 for then both (a real shame, given how well the white one drove. I really kept up the mechanics) I just proceeded to drive it daily as I have for the past 2 years. Too late now, nature took its course and a buck jumped out at the passenger side fender. Still drives, but now windshield has a crack in the bottom passenger side, Fender, front bumper, and hood are all quite banged up, and lost a headlamp assembly. I'm goin
  4. The only point I'll note with a conversion is that on glass lenses, it's easy for ice to build up. LED bulbs may not put out much heat and it would be possible for them to freeze over in colder climates. Not a huge deal, but apparently huge enough for Volvo and other companies to put wipers on their headlights with glass lenses.
  5. I also have several parts for sale, if you're interested, I probably have it in the parts car. Just make an offer.
  6. Full listing up on Craigslist now: http://washingtondc.craigslist.org/nva/cto/5876562320.html
  7. Well, I hate to do it, I love the car, but my work and the condition of my car make it difficult to do anything other than maintain its current state. It's in Fair/Good condition. It was repainted once I believe. Lots of new parts just in the past year or so, perhaps the best thing I did to it was swap in a later (1993) 3.0 V6, now with just 70k miles on it, in replacement of the smoke machine that was in it before. If you know about these 3.0's, they made some great improvements in '92 that effectively eliminated the notorious smoking. This engine runs like a champ and I change fluids regular
  8. I think a new column needs to be added to this list so we can keep track of the living and the dead. I've been watching Craigslist and cross-referencing it to this list, may be another good way to pull in more vins.
  9. How bizarre, strangely enough my parts car pull down assembly has the same issue, which is why I didn't question it at first. I don't know how or why, but somehow the bracket for that pin has gotten twisted on both of them and allowed the pins to slip by the 11 o'clock hook. I wonder if this is the mysterious cause of many people's tops where the electrical fixes don't seem to resolve anything...
  10. I bought an identical GM trunk pull down switch (ACDelco 16629927 GM Original Equipment Trunk Lid Pull Down Switch, it's used for a variety of Cadillac for several model years, according to various suppliers, but looks identical to our part in pictures). Reaper, that bottom hook (6 o'clock) catches the arm that extends and retracts from the left that comes from the pull down motor assembly (which I have removed at the moment, as I assume it is not used for the manual process). In turning the nut from the trunk, the pin at the 1 o'clock seems to interact with either the hook at 11 o
  11. Here we go. Does this look right? The pins are in the latches, but won't pull down tight even with the pulldown bracket adjusted as low as possible. I feel like I need to use far too much force in order to get anything to pull down. Does this look right? I've ordered a replacement paddle switch which will hopefully resolve my electrical issues, but I'm concerned about it mechanically.
  12. I've tried several times to upload a picture but I keep getting error messages. Will try uploading on a similar thread or posting elsewhere and linking.
