New poster to the forum!

Hi Everyone,

I know a bit about these cars but am here for more help. I did the AC system less the evaporator but now I need to do my opti.

94 caprice lt1 with 179k miles. Shorty headers, cat delete, cold air intake, throttle body bypass, lowering spindles, 180 thermostat, few other things

Again, welcome. I always look to see if there is someone nearby that wants to work together on our cars. As far as the desert, BTDT. Little different situation though.

I've already read a lot about it. I'm thinking of starting it tonight.

Shes not pretty and leaks oil but when it runs its pretty fast! Hopefully it will be more reliable after I do the opti. Anywhere local that I can get some interior cosmetics restored on the cheap?

Who's Jonesing that spoiler? Now, OP. Start checking local PnPs for parts that are no longer made or available from any dealer. Fred has lots of parts and I'm sure as soon as you post your needs he will help. He's straight up to do business with. There are others here too. We have to save as many of these cars as we can.

Previous owner put the spoiler on. Not sure what its for but onviously not this car lol. Tbh i kinda like it though. Might keep it might not. Obviously it needs to be painted but so does the whole car. I've had the car up to 120mph and at those speeds I feel like it is doing something.

I can't find any pnps with any caprices let alone ones with my color interior, especially in good condition
