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)

@  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.

Happy thanksgiving Buick Regal old timers and granddaddies.

 

My Audi A6 has a plastic underbelly "pan" which goes underneath the entire engine bay. The name of this thing itself is part of the reason I'm posting since I don't really know the best words.  Help me out.  Some ideas: belly pan, splash guard, underbelly panel, underbelly plate, belly plate, belly pan, undercarriage pan?  What's the best word?  

 

It is a pain to remove just to do an oil change.  Also, if you are doing a job and loose a bolt, it will go there instead of the concrete.  But, even so I need this on my cars and was curious if there's such a thing on my buick regal.  I got my regal used and the first thing to loose would be this thing, so I was just asking if this is available on this car.  I checked ebay to see if there's a part, but didn't see anything.  I want it for a few reasons and would be happy to get an aftermarket one if anyone knows of one.

They're correct, but also be sure the air dam is in place.  It's usually a ~3-4" plastic flap hanging down just ahead of the front cross beam of the engine cradle/crossmember directing air to the radiator to not bypass it.  These have more structure on some newer W-bodies, extending to the bottom of the bumper cover (my GXP's does that).

 

Sidenote:  ~12yrs ago a friend (JohnC from ClubGP) made a panel for under the rear of his GTP to cut-down the "parachute" effect from the rear bumper cover, since it's hollow from the gas tank to the back.  Covering that area where only the spare tire well occupies seemed to be a cool idea.  He ran some high 11.4's at ~119mph like this with some great launches, granted the XPZ setup with his custom head porting probably did 99% of the job, but every bit helps.
