Just became a moderator on 3800Pro, so that's fun. I know it's gone thru a couple hands since Intense got sold, then that guy sold the forum. Not sure what that'll help, but it's something.

@  ejguillot : (26 July 2020 - 02:47 AM)

Glad to hear it. Would be a tragedy for us remaining owners to lose the knowledge in these forums.

@  dezldave961 : (12 July 2020 - 01:55 AM)

Hosted a buddy and his family for cookout... Ya, not alot on forums lately. Just keeping the lights on.

@  ejguillot : (08 July 2020 - 03:16 AM)

Everyone have a good 4th? This place is a ghost town...

@  ejguillot : (10 May 2020 - 10:43 PM)

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)

Nobody posting? Why not?

@  ejguillot : (27 March 2020 - 05:19 PM)

So far so good. Still working, fortunately.

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

Triple Edge no longer selling built transmissions?

18 March 2020 - 08:46 PM

So I was looking into beefing up the trans eventually since the mods I am currently installing should get the car into the mid - low 13s. Everyone usually recommends Triple Edge Performance for one of their rebuilt transmissions to handle the additional power. Well, I went onto their website last night only to read a message stating that after March 31st 2020, they will no longer sell performance rebuilt transmissions. They will, however, continue to sell upgraded parts and rebuild kits for the do-it-yourselfer.

This is a bummer. Besides them, are there any other reputable builders of the 4T65 that would be comparable in performance and reliability? Or should one just purchase their rebuild kit + a single chain kit and input shaft and attempt to rebuild the trans yourself?

Btw, I posted this here since this section gets more “traffic”, and the trans sub-forum literally gets zero.

Bottom hood strut ball diameter size

21 February 2020 - 02:59 AM

Just got my 1997 Regal GS up and running again. Will finally be tagged and back into daily service tomorrow. Been too long.

 

However, the hood won't stay up. As long as I can remember, I've been using a pole to support the hood when working on the engine. After doing some light research, apparently there are supposed to be a pair of gas struts that hold the hood up. They are mounted on a pair of ball studs on the hood, as well as another pair for the bottom of the struts on the car itself. My bottom ones are broken... and I was wondering if anyone can either take a photo of theirs so I can see what is supposed to be there, or even better, take a measurement of the ball stud so I can drill out the busted ones and order new replacements.

 

Any help will be greatly appreciated!


1997 Regal GS interior restoration

17 October 2019 - 12:45 AM

Finally have some time to start the resurrection of my 1997 Buick Regal GS. Will begin either this weekend, or the following weekend. One of the things that needs DESPERATE attention is the interior. From 2013 to 2017, my wife drove this car daily and hauled the kids (newborn - 4 year old daughter and 4-8 year old son) everyday to school, and wherever else they needed to go. Most of the times, she had to drop them off at daycare, where she let them eat (of all things) pancakes and syrup IN THE CAR. Bring your barf bags, as the photos below depict the carnage that came about of such practices...

I decided to go with what I could find on the internet after a few minutes of searching. Anyone heard of these guys? They seem legit, and I will be ordering their mass back carpet in medium grey.

I will be completely cleaning the remaining trim pieces with Simple Green and isopropyl alcohol. Hopefully everything turns out great, as I want this interior to not only look awesome, but to smell amazing also.

 

Any experience or thoughts on this setup will be welcome.
