  1. I got the job done today. It's not as nice as I hoped, but it's a lot better than it was. From the front it looks okay, but the sides are shorter than the originals.
  2. John, I'm just about finished this job. The biggest problem I had was that the holes in the fillers were not even close to the old ones. I ended up drilling a few holes in the support frame and used zip ties to keep them in place. I left everything a little loose and I' ll line up the bumper and tighten eveything down tomorrow. One thing I learned is that it really takes two people to put the bumper back. My floor jack and two milk crates worked, but it wasn't easy. I'll post some pictures now and when the finished job later.
  3. About two years ago I installed a new rear bumper filler on my 1985 Lesabre. Now It's time to do the front and was just wondering if anybody here has done this and is there anything I need to know. Thanks
  4. Ben, that's a real good point. I guess it's time to have a friend work the wheel while I see what's going on under there. Thanks
  5. Al, with the wheels pointed straight I can turn the wheel about 6 inches each way before the tires start to turn. I have bias tires and yes it wanders quite a bit. I have a shop manual and I've read how to adjust it, but I don't want to bother if it does not help. I have adjusted boxes in the past and all it usually does is causes binding. Thanks
  6. Has anyone had any success adjusting this type of steering box? Mine has about 12 inches of play. Thanks
  7. Thanks Ben and Pete. Looks like I'll need to find a buddy when it's time.
  8. I just was wondering if anyone knows if you need to remove the hood to replace the radiator. Thanks
  9. NTX5467, Thanks for the reply. I can't find anything online so I think I'll try some local body shops to see if there is something I can do with it. The car is in nice shape and that really detracts from the looks.
  10. Does anybody know what this vinyl top molding is called and can I get replacement pieces for mine? Thanks
  11. I took the bulb out and the socket and wire are the only thing I can find, no Mercury switch or contact switch. I guess I'll try to track that wire back through the lid. Thanks
  12. Does anyone know what turns on or off the trunk light on my '85 LeSabre? The light sometimes stays on after I close the lid and it kills the battery. Thanks
  13. John, you're right about the one that should be over the name plate. Mine is the collectors edition and I do like looking at that. Thanks for the help, now I know everything is good.
  14. John, I got a chance to look at the car today and you are exactly right, they are three small lights in the bottom of the dash, two over the climate control and one over the headlight switch. They do dim when I dim the dash lights. I just thought the backlights in the dash where enough and that these are map lights. I never saw these on any car before and I can't really see a reason for them. I learn something everyday. Thanks for your help,
  15. Thanks John. No matter what I do with the headlight switch they stay on full. Maybe I need a new switch.
