So yesterday was an absolutely gorgeous day here. I was just about to put my Dodge away for the night when I saw a perfect photo for these two.....

And the motor FINALLY all cleaned up, not leaking with new Fel-Pro gaskets. First time I ever shined the motor on this car

Looking good! Just read this entire thread for the first time, some nice work you've done here. Kudos to everything you've managed to do without a shop to work in. My dad used to have a '95 LeSabre, we called it grandpa. Was never a huge fan of the exterior looks as it wasn't sporty enough for me but thing drove and rode like a dream! And the A/C omgoodness, was like a freezer in there. I slept in the car on more than a few occasions, most memorable being during the hog roast night for my high school grad party haha. When my Grand Prix head gaskets went I drove the car until I found something different and sadly got t-boned after work one night and totalled the thing (right after a tranny rebuild and new tires too) I know my dad still misses the car and i feel bad for it but he has taken a liking to a '96 Olds 88 now. Keep up the great work and happy wrenching to ya. Hope to see it on the road for a long while, they sure do not make em like this anymore. :beerchug: -Nick

Wow, so its been awhile since I've done anything on here, haha. I still have the PAU, and for the first time since I bought it, I finally ironed out ALL the kinks. Pretty much everything has been replaced on the car drivetrain wise. Lets see, since I posted last it has received
- New Denso 02 - Both tensioner assem.
- New cat - Gatorback belts
- New muffler - New Harmonic
- New EGR
- New plugs (4x)
- New radiator and overflow tank
- New W/P

Im sure there's more, but I cant think of everything at the moment. But yes, she is still alive and doing better than ever. The typical rot hole in the wheel well has been cut out and new metal welded in, tail light water leak solved, as well as the trunk body seam leak. Really I've just been catching up on the countless years of negligence and I think Ive almost gotten it to where I feel comfortable with actually modding the *dang* thing. I already put on a new tranny modulator valve and crispened up my shifts a tad. I plan on getting YT rockers and LS7 lifters come tax time here and complementing them with a Sinister PCM tune and ported blower. I'll try to get some pics up of her soon here.

That's awesome. Glad you're putting in the effort to keep that old boat around. They don't make them like that anymore. Yours still looks real good.
