Sweet!

@  dezldave961 : (07 May 2020 - 04:14 PM)

Got bored and started making build video...

@  dezldave961 : (04 May 2020 - 04:05 AM)

I need to hunt down the little black trim bar that's at the top edge of the GS rocker panel cover, for driver's side between rear door and wheel well.

@  ejguillot : (03 May 2020 - 02:42 AM)

I've been on there too. I hope this forum is kept open, there's too much info to allow it to be lost!

@  dezldave961 : (24 April 2020 - 10:25 PM)

I've been monitoring GrandPrixForums and 3800Pro (don't have FB)... also hopped on TurboBuick, but 99% GN chatter from boomers

@  ejguillot : (19 April 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Everyone at home, plenty of free time.

@  ejguillot : (19 April 2020 - 02:33 PM)

@  tpivette : (25 February 2020 - 02:35 AM)

@  monte0 : (17 February 2020 - 05:04 AM)

@  ejguillot : (14 January 2020 - 10:36 PM)

Hope the new year is treating everyone well..

@  ejguillot : (16 December 2019 - 01:55 AM)

Hi all. Decade is coming to a close... I'm feeling a little old!

@  M_Dogg : (05 December 2019 - 11:20 PM)

Cheers!

@  ejguillot : (02 December 2019 - 01:13 AM)

Hi there. Some of us are working to keep these cars alive and running. Glad you had a good 15 year run.

@  opera_bob : (30 November 2019 - 08:39 AM)

Every time I see an Old Buick I have major respect for it. I know what kind of torque these cars make.

@  opera_bob : (30 November 2019 - 08:38 AM)

I sold my 2002 GS back in 2017. She was falling apart all over the place. So I sold her and bought a 2017 Focus RS in 2017.

Has anyone put LED reverse lights in our cars?  I know that the BCM controls the interior lights and LEDs do not function properly with the dimming feature.  Will LEDs work in the reverse??

Advance auto has a 2 pack of 1156 super brite led bulbs for 25 bucks.  I want as much light as possible but 25 bucks for bulbs is ridiculous.

I did my full LED conversion a while back so I had to scratch my head where did I get the bulbs from hehe.

 

$16 each, 1,300 lumens.

Ordered 4 because that's the same bulb as the headlights on my lawnmower and these old eyes need all the help they can get. Lol

Thanks guys for the help.

Just bought and tried the Sylvania Zevo Super Brights at Auto Zone.  They are no good as reverse lights in our cars.  I didn't realize at the time of purchase that the LED chips are solely on the side of the bulb and no light is shining out of the top of the bulb.  This means it does not shine straight out of the housing, it shines on the sides of the housing.  Very disappointed.

DDM usually has decent cyber Monday deals, at least they used to.
