So I have been on this forum for awhile now but never got around to showing my car...so here goes.

Here is my 88 Bonne, not perfect but still a pretty reliable car.

Outside good:

Obviously not a perfect specimen, but I should be getting the rust fixed within the next few weeks. :banana:

Interior:

Most of the trim has been painted black, this shot shows the original grey to black.

I have a fullish sound system in it (which i did before the front bumper got trashed).

Let me know what you think. I have plans for this car, but first gotta stop that rust and then I'm looking to do the series 2 swap and SSE cladding. luckily my local UPull-it has 2 SSE bonnes sitting in it, which together have a full cladding kit.

An 88 was my first Bonneville! I loved it right up until the day it got flattened by a Potomac Edison, power pole setting truck! I think it's designation was LE but, not sure anymore. I salvaged the 60/40 front seats and installed them in my beater 88GMC K2500 pickup so that I'd finally have headrests between my head and the rear window. A shot of paint and your's will look showroom new. (maybe a little Bondo first) :wink:

Needs a little love, but looks like a good base to make a nice car out of! That bodystyle is downright sexy in SSE cladding, IMO.

Outside has seen better days but the interior looks really good! How you liking those Polk 6X9's by the way?

Thanks guys. Other that the rust in the pics she's rust free, underbody is spotless and like 90% of the undercoating is still there so hopefully I should be able to get the cosmetics fixed pretty quickly. though the paint might take a bit because I wanna do it right to make it last by stripping everything out, re-undercoating the bottom with a good spray on bed liner probably, and then paint everything (engine bay, the inside of the doors, really anyplace that could be seen from some sort of angle). Basically im looking at a full restoration because I love this year compared to any of the other bonneville body styles. my only concern mechanically is that the transmission isn't the happiest, just hope it'll hold up till i get the new engine and whatnot in.

Maybe it's just me but, I think I'd want to have all of the engine & trans pulling/reinstallation finished before prepping and painting the body. I've seen a lot of dings happen during that kind of work !

Generally i agree with doing engine and trans first, but since im having al lot of trouble finding a good doner car Im gonna do what i can for now. Also i just wanna stop that rust befor it gets too bad, i'm not gonna paint it yet though. And i would like to snag those SSE parts before the cars are rotated out.
